Chances are, if you built your home, you picked out all of your own light fixtures. You tailored each of them to the space they were installed in, and probably even arranged your decor in that particular room to compliment those light fixtures. Am I right?
But if you’re like me, and you bought your home after it had been previously lived-in, you may have ended up with a few light fixtures that were…less than ideal. If you’re nodding your head right now, I have JUST the solution for you.
“Who’s uncle? He does lights?” my husband questioned.
“No no no! ParrotUncle.com!”
I got a raised eyebrow on that one, folks. That is, until I showed him the site.
The first set of lights that I’ve been looking to replace since we moved into our home almost 3 years ago are the track lights that are in our kitchen. They are dated, they are dingy, and they are HOT. And come on now, y’all, who wants to stand over the stove and take THAT heat PLUS have heat beating down on you from above? Not me!
See what I mean?
Now sure, I could run down to Home Depot, which is about 10 minutes away, and grab some lights to replace these with. I’m sure they would be nice.
But, I’m not looking for some run-of-the-mill standard lights. I had something specific in mind. So I decided to look at the pendant lighting from Parrot Uncle and see what I might find.
The website itself is SO easy to navigate. I knew I specifically wanted some pendant lights, and it was as easy as going to ceiling lights, then pendant lights, and then I narrowed it down to the Vintage Industrial category. (You can also narrow things down by price, material, color, height and number of lights!)
And look what I found…
