The Dreaded “Boob Light”

BYYYYYEEEE BOOB LIGHTS!!! 

Last week when I posted about my new house I made a joke about all the “boob” lights in the house that I was replacing — above is the pile we found in the basement this weekend that gave us a laugh. Many of you messaged me to ask what I was replacing them with because you were trying to do the same. The answer really varies on your ceiling height — our first floor has 10′ ceilings so I can pretty much use anything (I’m using this one for sure in the passage way from the kitchen to the formal living room). On the second floor, the ceilings are almost 9′, so we also can do more of a semi-flush style (in my master I’m using this in the larger size hung high to the ceiling, in my guest room/Emma’s temporary room this one, in the office this and the master bath this).

But if you have flush mounts because your ceiling height is not substantial, there are a lot of pretty options for you that do not look like a boob :)  Just be prepared that when you take down a boob light, you will probably have to touch up the ceiling paint as they leave rings, and unless the fixture you are putting back up is the same diameter or larger, it’ll look dirty.
