Mid-Century Bullet Light

You see what I was hopeless to resist? That's right-- the mid century bullet light came home with me. If you follow me on Pinterest, then you've probably seen my search for a replacement porch light. I've hated the builder-standard one we've been stuck with, despite spray painting it silver.

And upgrading the light allowed me to finally install our new house numbers without feeling like they clashed too much with the rest of our exterior. {The picture shows J doing the drilling, but trust me- I did my fair share of work.}

 Et voila! It's a simple change, but one that makes me very happy.

I still have to do a little bit of paint touch-up, {I was too excited-- I had to take pictures before waiting for the caulk to dry} but otherwise, it's all good. Maybe someday I'll get a new doorbell button?

Happy weekend, all!

You know what is weird, because Utah hasn't quite settled in on me sometimes (pretty rarely) I get a kind of homesick. Anyways seeing these pics made me think of the holidays we spent at your house, so cozy. Kind of makes me wish we had plans to have Thanksgiving there. mmmm crescent rolls. Miss you, your house is awesome.

Looks great. I mean those are the same numbers we have on our house so.... :) But really, the light pulls it all together.

Very cool. So I'm wondering about mid-century wreathes. What do they look like, I wonder.
