Hooray for our new modern porch light!
Caleb and I bought a HEKTAR Pendant light when IKEA opened here in Milwaukee – 2 years ago! Yep! We’ve had this pendant light sitting in our garage just getting dusty and taking up space.
We had originally bought it to put at the top of our stairs – but, after installing it, we both decided it looked obnoxious and needed to come back down.
Last weekend we repainted our front porch, added some new plants, so it was only necessary that we update the porch light!
I was at a photo session and when I came home I noticed that Caleb had replaced the light! I couldn’t be happier! I was blown away by how much of a difference painting the front porch made and the light just made it even better! Thanks, Caleb!! XX
I am so happy we were finally able to find a place for this light! I love it!
Here was the old porch light…
And, ta-dah! The new modern one…
You can find the HEKTAR Pendant light at IKEA. The simple, oversized metal shape is inspired by old lamps from places like factories and theaters.
Home Depot has a similar one: Matte Black Barn Light Pendant by Globe Electic
We have a few other porches that need new lighting, here are some I’ve been drooling over . . .
