Vintage Lighting Anyone?

Hello everyone! I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. This weekend we are prepping our kitchen redo...which means researching a perfect shade of white for our kitchen cabinets & also picking out some new replacement pendant lighting for our breakfast bar area. I'm a shabby chic meets vintage industrial type of gal when it comes to home decor. With that being said, these are just two of my MANY favorites at Barn Light Electric {I say "many" because once you go to their website, it really is hard to pick just one favorite!}:

I really love this School House Pendant


this Barn Light Warehouse Pendant

This is how our kitchen looked like in it's "transition state" when we were repainting the ENTIRE interior of our house ourselves {the kitchen used to be a "bubble gum pink color in high gloss}. You see those 3 pendant lights above the breakfast bar area, I'd love to replace them with some of the lights featured above! It would be my dream to redo the entire kitchen by removing the L-Shaped Bar to open up the space and add a size appropriate island, but since that's not going to happen anytime soon - repainting the maple colored cabinets white & adding some new hardware and lighting is the next best thing!

Come to think of it, we are actually in need of more lighting in the house. Currently, both my boys' rooms do not have any ceiling lights yet {we are still in the "fixing up phase"}.

This is my teenage son's room...

...and this is my youngest one's room.

Notice that the center ceiling lights are missing? My older son's room is going to have more of a vintage industrial theme, so something like this would look great in his room:

Barn Light Warehouse Pendant 12" to 27" Shade

and there are a variety of flush mount ceiling lights that would like great in my little one's room!

And let's not talk about how my hallway AND laundry room light fixtures need to also be replaced...
