I’ve been posting a lot about our downstairs bathrooms + kitchen
+ musing about when/if to splurge on fixtures for said-same.
My most recent high-low quandary?
The light fixture in our main bathroom.
Here’s the less expensive of the 2 I’m considering:
We’ll have a look-see at the competition in just a moment.
First, here’s what’s brewing in that room so far.
We’ll repurpose this antique pine cupboard into a vanity:
Adding this simple, Shaker-style sink:
+ this beautiful — but sadly, a tad pricey — faucet,
which I’ve already ordered:
Now, back to my light fixture conundrum.
We’ve seen my $129 choice from Pottery Barn.
Next up, the similarly styled but more “spendy” one,
@ $179 from Restoration Hardware:
What I really like is the metal rim around the glass.
It looks kind of white here, but I’m pretty sure it’s chrome.

Once again, here’s the similar but less expensive PB light:
So. There you have it.
2 similarly styled light fixtures
+ a “whopping”** $50 price difference.
(**I guess “whopping” is in the bank balance of the beholder.)
But enough about my troubles. Back to the light fixtures.
Once again, @ $179:
For those keeping score at home,
I’m already “over budget” for this bathroom.
Remember — there’s that pesky $275.40 faucet that’s en route;
here ’tis again:
But wait. There’s more.
I have already determined that it is imperative
we I splurge on this faucet, too:
SO. At this point, I dunno what I’ll do re: the light situation.
Today I’m furiously sewing Los Angeles pillows . . .
. . . for this pretty gal’s gallery in Los Angeles:
May I recommend an interesting article about the gallery?

But back, once more, to my light fixture situation —
I guess I’ll just have to keep my nose on the pillow making grindstone,
keep my fingers crossed + see how “flush” I am
when it’s time to order!
Meanwhile, what are your thoughts on the light fixtures?
Is the RH light with the metal rim worth $50 more
than its almost-identical twin from PB?
