And when I say you, I mean me. Recently I purchased two of these lovelies -- otherwise known as the Access Lighting 2029 Nauticus Bulkhead Outdoor Sconce -- from ATGStores.com for $27 apiece with free shipping.
I bought one each for the laundry room and my walk-in closet, which are side-by-side and have sloped ceilings. While the small, dangling bare bulbs we currently have in there (attractive, no?) haven't whacked anyone on the head just yet, I wanted a flush-mount fixture that will stay out of the way. I think these guys will do the trick nicely. I am pleased with how well they're made and how nice they look in person. Now if we only had a ceiling on which to mount them...
You may have noticed I have a thing for industrial light fixtures -- a fixation, if you will. (Har har.) I will be a little sad when all of our electrical boxes are finally fitted with their fixtures, because for lack of a better social life I truly enjoy browsing online for lighting options. Is that weird? Some home renovator-types can't get enough throw pillows or art prints. For me it's lights. I want them all. Fortunately, my love of industrial and outdoor lighting is also fairly economical, and they also tend to be more substantial than their indoor-only peers. Win-win, I say.
Check out my outdoor/industrial lighting collection so far:
In addition to the new purchase, we have a total of three of the Portfolio Outdoor Wall Lights (far left; $25 each at Lowe's) lighting our home's front and rear entrances. We have one of these Hampton Bay Outdoor Cottage Lanterns (center; $35 each at Home Depot) over each vanity in the guest bathroom. We have two industrial wire cage pendants (right; free, salvaged from a school renovation) over the kitchen work table, and we plan to put two more over the dining room table.
And I still have to buy lighting for the master bedroom and bathroom, the powder room and our office nook. Lucky me!
Note: Nobody paid, gave, incentivized or promised me anything for writing this post. I just have an industrial light obsession.
