The “Treasures” I found on the World’s Longest Yard Sale for our own home

So, you remember that crazy adventure I took you on almost two weeks ago?

It was a 5 day dream come true down The World’s Longest Yard Sale!

We found so many amazing treasures for the Habitat for Humanity family that we were buying for, and it was so hard not to shop for ourselves!

I hit the honey hole somewhere in Ohio, and I swear I could have furnished my whole house from that one sale!

I found something I really wanted for our home, and I begged persuaded Cy into letting me buy these barn lights.

I knew we would be seeing my sister the next day in Kentucky, and that we could hand them off to her since we couldn’t take them on our flight home.

We also found these matching pendant lights.  They originally came from an old school house closet.  Isn’t that cool?

Since the there will be two separate sinks in the boys’ bathroom, I am hoping these will look right above the sinks.  (fingers crossed)

Kind of like this…

Except with two sinks.

 

If not, I’m sure I could find somewhere else for them.

Or I could just dance with them!

Don’t you think they would be cute over a bathroom sink?

We paid $125 for all three of these vintage lights.  We chewed them down almost $100 dollars!  I think that is a great deal for all three lights.

Especially since this green barn light from Barn Light Electric is $129 by itself.  This is an 11 inch shade, and ours is much larger than that.

I have been crazy about barn lights for a long time. They will be the perfect accessory for our boys’ rooms upstairs.

If you don’t believe me, check out these pictures I found.

Here is a barn light like mine used as a side table light.

Barn lights look great in kitchens too!

And I am crazy about these barn lights on this front porch.  I love that glass door too. That porch says “welcome home” to me.

So what do you think?

 

Do you like barn lights in home décor?

Do you think I got a good deal on my three lights?
