Pinterest is not my friend. Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE Pinterest for all of the wonderful ideas I find there but the problem is that I find too many wonderful ideas! As soon as I’ve pinned something into a category, another something shows up and I pin that, forgetting all about the first something I’ve pinned. If that makes sense to you then you are just like me!
Having too many ideas coming at you, one after another, can cause you to lose focus on what you’re doing in pursuit of the next “shiny” thing. There is a name for that:
Shiny Object Syndrome or S.O.S.! Seriously!
This is a sponsored post and though I’ve received compensation, that compensation did not prevent me from giving a fair and honest review.
Several months back I won a drawing for $60 off any light fixture from Parrot Uncle on my friend Sherry’s blog, No Minimalist Here. I was so excited to win! Looking through Parrot Uncle’s online catalog I found various types of Pendant Lighting, including Tiffany Pendant Lights, beautiful Crystal Chandy’s, and so much more, all at really GREAT prices. I quickly decided on the flush mount fixture you see here because . . . well, it sparkles. A LOT. When I went to place my order I was asked if I would be interested in doing a review of the company in exchange for a FREE light fixture! You betcha’!
Given the great price of the fixtures in the catalog I was somewhat skeptical about what the light fixture might look like or what the quality might be. I even thought the crystals might be plastic. So imagine my surprise when I unwrapped it and found dozens and dozens of beautiful crystals all sparkling at me at the same time, thus causing me to lose all sense of focus.
In review, this is a beautiful transitional style light fixture. It has a nice drum shade with a fuzzy black print on it and tons of sparkle. It takes four LED lightbulbs (not included) but as you can see from this picture, even when the lights are switched off the crystals pick up light from the bathroom window and show off a rainbow of color.
The only thing I must say in review is that though there were pictures for how the crystals attach to one another (they came separate and carefully wrapped in bubble wrap to keep them from chipping) there weren’t instructions on how to hard wire the light fixture into the ceiling. My hubby and I know how to do that so it wasn’t a problem but if you don’t know how it is wise to hire someone to do the job for you.
Your safety is very, very important to me!
I am so pleased with the beauty of this fixture in my master bathroom, in spite of the fact that it makes me want to continue the updates. Be sure to check out Parrot Uncle’s catalog of great fixtures, with free shipping and free returns.
Now, I must get back to my Pinterest Bathroom Board to see what I might find next to add to this bright and shiny room.
Focus, focus, focus.
