It's WAY to big for the room.
I should probably fill you in on what sort of home we live in.
We live in a little 3 bedroom 1.5 bathroom bungalow. The upstairs is an "attic conversion", which equals the ceilings upstairs are a bit lower than the norm.
(aka: I have no problem standing up, raising my hands above my head and touching the ceiling....I'm 5'7")
I would love nothing more than to walk upstairs right now and take a hammer to the Big Bertha of a ceiling fan hanging in our bedroom.
Sadly this is not an option.
Due to our upstairs' dark, hot, muggy past (as an attic) a fan is a must.
I have decided to replace Big Bertha with a lightLESS ceiling fan (just a simple white wooden discreet diddy).
For a light source in the room I have chosen bedside lamps.
This little beauty is one of two which can be found at this Etsy shop.
Check here for this little sweet pea of a lamp.
This curvy lamp is from here too.
(note: not buying the shades in the pictures with the lamps....that's a whole separate fiasco!)
PS: Stone is watching the boob tube while I am typing this post. He just got sucked into an infomercial, leaned over to me and said:
"Court, we need a ShamWow."
