Cool + Affordable Lighting

"There are two ways of spreading light - to be the candle or the mirror that reflects it." 
 ~ Edith Wharton

I don't know about you but I feel summer cannot get here soon enough.  Friday morning, you will find me exhaling and laying by the pool with my sweeties.  The fact that I have a thirteen year old really punched me in the face this year.  We have four...short...years left with the five of us together. Oh, how that makes my heart hurt.  So, my main goal this summer is to spend as much simple time with the beautiful McGough crew.  

Speaking of simple times, we have a game room upstairs for movie watching, game playing and snuggling, in general.   I painted it a moody peacock color several months ago and loaded it with cast-off pieces.  It really is quite cozy.  The only problem is the non-existent lighting.  I want something cool but don't want to pay a lot of dough.   I have better things to spend my $$$ on  - like mini-golf and snow cones.

I narrowed down some chandeliers loaded with personality but light on cost.  Hopefully, we can get something up there quickly.  How else am I supposed to see my Uno cards?
