Window Shopping Wednesday - Vanity Light Fixtures

It's time again for Window Shopping Wednesday, a new feature on Pretty Distressed designed to help you shop from the comfort of your computer chair. No showering or makeup required.

This week I am taking a look at bathroom vanity light fixtures. Light fixtures can be a big investment, but in the grand scheme of remodeling costs, you can get a lot of bang for your buck by replacing a dated fixture. And in most cases, they are pretty easy to install as long as you follow the safety instructions included with your purchase.

Look at the difference in my own master bath once I updated my $35 builder grade light with the Argenta 5 Light Vanity Light from Z-Lite.

This modern-farmhouse bathroom is all over Pinterest, and it is easy to see why. I am in love with the use of this barn light over a vanity from Decor Pad. It is a really unique look.

Let's move onto our next fixture from Melissa at 320 Sycamore. Here is an example of a clean, modern fixture. It looks really classy and not too flashy. 

My last inspiration is bringing fancy back. I love the romantic elegance of this fixture from Accent Surfaces.

Get the look:

Happy window shopping! Come back on Friday when I will be featuring a post about my local Annie Sloan stockist, Carter's Cottage, in Dekalb, Illinois. I had quite a magical visit there last week and can't wait to tell you all about it.

Window Shopping Wednesday - Wall Hooks

Happy Wednesday and welcome to the first edition of what I hope will be a new weekly post- Window Shopping Wednesday. 

Let's face it. In our busy lives we don't always have time to scour the flea market or stop by that cute little antique shop that is an hour away or even hack or upcycle something from around the house. Sometimes it is just easier to take a seat at the computer and shop from the comfort of your own home (or cube, don't worry I won't tell your boss).

So today, I bring you Window Shopping Wednesday. Each week I hope to share a decorating idea with you and then give you some products you can buy to recreate the look.

This creative way to use a wall hook comes from Chris at Just A Girl. I just love this idea for the bathroom instead of using a plain old towel rack.

I also like the idea of using them in the kitchen for pots and pans or aprons and dish towels.

Of course, wall hooks work great for foyers. I love this example from Midwest Living.

All these wall hooks are from the Update That Hardware event on One King's Lane, a great flash sale site for home goods. This sale ends on 4/20.
