As we update Harry and Maddie’s bathrooms I am adding a 4-light vanity sconce over the sink/vanity in each bathroom, as well as a flush mount in the middle of the room. Neither has a window and I feel they need better light (previously there were two can lights in a soffit.) I cannot tell you how many hours I have spent looking for a flush mount and a vanity light that would work together. First off, I found few sources that had both that complimented each other and were visually appealing. But the ones that I did find, well….they were way too expensive for the kids’ bathrooms.
In defeat, I went over to Lowes and picked up the fixtures and brought them home. As I unloaded the car, I could tell our nanny had an opinion….so I asked what she thought. Let’s just say she wasn’t impressed with the flush mount (I agree….it wasn’t too appealing. Think builder grade, which I was trying to get away from).
So, Sunday afternoon I tried to think of some source I had been missing (I mean seriously I have been through EVERY fixture on CSN, Lumens, Shades of Light, Lamps.com, trade only resources, etc.) On a whim, I jumped online and visited Overstock .
And Voilà…Problem Solved.
At under $70, which includes shipping, I can afford to change the shades to work with our colors. I am thinking simple linen. And, the matching flush mount, at around $35! Best part, I searched this item on the internet and saw it priced in the $200-400 range at various online retailers.
So yesterday, when I decided that I may be able to find a better deal on faucets (which I had already purchased but not yet had installed) I checked overstock again. And look what I found for around $100 (free shipping).
Like most people, I love a bargain. So these bargains made my day. The best part, they have already shipped!
Do you remember to check Overstock from time to time? Any other great online discount sources you recommend?
