New Lights for the Boys’ Bathroom!

Hey friends!  I hope you are having a great week!  We have been super busy around here!  Not only are we enjoying time with our little girl, but we are preparing for a very special audition that Jonathan has this weekend!!  (Can’t give any details right now, but I will share with you as soon as I can.)  ACK!  :)

Did I mention Jonathan turned 16 this past Sunday!   Oh my gosh!!!  Where has the time gone?!!!

I wanted to share with you the new light fixtures that we added to the boys’ bathroom vanities!


As you can see in the picture above, we had a wall plate above the mirror that covered the space that we eventually wanted to hang a light.  However, it takes me foooooorrrrrreeeeevvvvveeeeerrrr to pick lights out.  It drives the hubster crazy.  I actually kind of drive myself crazy!

But I finally found some lights that I LOVE!

I found them at Del Mar Fans & Lighting.  It is called the Hinkley Congress Wall Sconce.


There are many more beautiful Hinkley lights on their website to choose from, but I thought the “cage” look was boyish, and I thought the chrome would look good with the chrome vanity fixtures. 

I photoshopped the light into a picture of the boys’ bathroom to see if I would like it, and I did.

When the lights  arrived, Cy helped me install them.  We added a 1 inch thick piece of wood to the wall behind the fixture to help the light stick out a little bit further since our mirror had a “lip” on it.

I painted the piece of wood behind the lights the same color white as the wall treatment in the bathroom.

I am super excited with the way they look! 


They look great over both of the boys’ vanities!


I like that they are not super noticeable because they would have not looked good by the dark mirror frame if they were.  I like how they blend nicely with the rest of the decor.


It’s a little change, but it makes a big difference!

  1. The yellow tint to the light bulbs really doesn’t look bad in the photo — kinda’ coordinates with the tone of the countertops. Maybe not so much in person???
