Back in the early days of Barn Light Electric, owners Bryan and Donna Scott did it all. Like most small business owners, the couple created their web site design, developed new products, packed boxes for shipping, and even answered the phone as they enjoyed a hands-on approach to their growing business.
The couple recently heard from one of their very first customers – Michelle Pattee who purchased barn lights more than six years ago for her early 1900′s farmhouse located in Sebastopol, California.Read More
Anyone who has survived a major home renovation knows full well the hassles, headaches, and sometimes heartaches it can bring. For Beth and Brian of Salem, Oregon, adding a garage/entertainment space and remodeling eight rooms in their 1952 ranch home was a huge undertaking. It took three times longer than expected and they lived without a kitchen for five months.
But the constant mayhem outside their door has finally ended and the couple has put their contractor woes aside to start enjoying their renovated space just in time for spring.Read More
It’s tempting when you buy a house to dash in, put your personal stamp on it, and fill every square inch. When Kerry and her husband Travis moved into their new home on the coast of Maine, they decided to spend some time thinking instead about what they wanted the unfinished space above their garage to be. Kerry is the author of a blog called Kid Giddy while Travis is a graphic designer. Their thoughtful process and creative spirits led them to envision a creative studio.Read More
Spring is lurking just around the corner and you’re getting the itch. Not the allergy kind. It’s more of the itch to give your home a fresh look. And two of the most powerful options at your disposal, even if you’re not an avid DIYer, are color and lighting. So let’s breathe some new life into one of the most used rooms in the house — the kitchen.
Perhaps you’ve grown tired of builder beige on the walls. Bring home some of those sample bottles of paint and splash it around. Be bold! Try something new! Live with it for a week and see how the colors look at different times of the day. With minimal investment, you might just find the perfect shade!Read More
Sometimes a garage just isn’t big enough for all the stuff of life. From gardening tools to bikes to various holiday decorations, the items that can’t stay stashed in the living room need to find a home somewhere. In an effort to actually park the car in the garage, some homeowners opt to build a shed. These outbuildings run the gamut from simple to stunning, but classic gooseneck lighting is a must have!
Susan, an avid gardener in Arkansas, already had a shed in her back yard but it was in dire need of remodeling. New siding, paint, and trellises on either side of the structure gave the shed new life and an American made Original™ Warehouse Gooseneck Light was the crowning touch.
“I have a country garden/farm theme in my backyard and the gooseneck barn light enhances that theme,” Susan says. “One of the best things about the light is that I was able to match it to the hardware on the door with both color and finish.” Susan’s new light features a 12″ shade and is mounted with a G15 gooseneck arm in a matching Textured Black finish.
Over near Atlanta, Amanda backed into her garage putting her renovation efforts into high gear. Amanda chose the All Weather Gooseneck Farm Light Wall Mount in a Black finish. This fixture is part of our line of Discount Barn Lighting which offers both high quality lighting and affordable prices.
“I chose this barn light because it was a little cheaper than some of the similar choices, but still had a custom look,” Amanda says. “I wanted to enhance the traditional look of my house, reflect my family’s style, and not look like every other house on the block.”
For an even bolder look, don’t miss our classic Goodrich™ Porcelain Enamel Gooseneck Lighting collection which features a shiny, tough-as-nails finish that is simple to clean and will never fade or corrode!
