    So, after a year of contemplating which lantern light I wanted for our foyer, and looking at numerous variations, I finally decided on the perfect one! Through my research I found tons of different styles, colors, and price points, and today I’m compiling my top five favorite black lantern pendant lights under $200 (Man, that’s a mouthful!).

I know I’m asking for a lot here, but I have nine bridesmaids, many of which have already been bridesmaids…

    DIY Kitchen Island

    So, let’s talk kitchen island! Kitchen islands are the focal point in a kitchen. I feel like every time I see a picture of a kitchen on Pinterest or Instagram my eyes are instantly drawn to the kitchen island. Typically they have detailed wood work on the base, or eye catching counter tops, or beautiful pendant lights hanging above. The kitchen island is also typically a gathering place in a home, whether it’s talking to mom as she finishes up dinner, harboring appetizers and good conversations at a friendly get together, or even collecting all the goodies from the latest grocery trip. Islands are the multi-functional must have in a…
