Deployment Project # 63...Track Lighting

I kinda cheated on this deployment project....

I used the DEPLOYED to put it up for me! ha!

My fabulous hubby was just home for his 2 weeks of R & R and while he was home we took on another deployment project....

TRACK LIGHTING!!!

As you can see, here is the BEFORE shot of our kitchen....the lighting was dull....we needed a little more light...

(excuse the stuff on the counter...just keeping it real)  :-)


Luckily, the ceiling was already wired for lights or a fan....so half the work was already done for us...

We had to do some measuring first...it "only" took 3 adults to do this 'EASY" installation...

After an hour, we had NEW track lighting!!!

And God said, "LET THERE BE LIGHT"....

...and there was light....

I'd say it definitely brightens up the room!

Would you care to share where you got your track lighting fixture??....most of them are SO modern or just plain ugly and this one is really interesting and more traditional/transitional. LOVE IT!

Great job!

I want your curtains, BAD! I just spotted them and haven't even looked for any info on your blog yet. Will you let me know where I may find them/how you made them. I'm positively in love!

Where did you get that fabulous track lighting? I've been surfing and checking on different sites to look for great home lighting pieces in preparation for our house renovation :) Any suggestions? Thanks!
