I don’t know about anyone else, but I’m ready for spring. Ready to throw open the windows and let fresh air in, ready to wear flip flops every day, and ready to clean my garage from top to bottom. Nothing makes me happier than making our garage a space that we can actually use.
If you’re looking for a little garage inspiration, Ron from Mims, Florida, sent us some photos of his garage after he recently upgraded the lighting.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!

Few renovation projects are truly complete the first time around. For Amanda, in Atlanta, Georgia, it took several years, in fact, to get her garage reveal-ready for her blog called Dixie Delights. When she purchased her home, the original garage door was solid wood and 40 years old. She backed into it a couple of years ago knocking it off the track and knocking renovation plans into overdrive.Read More
A serious love of all things vintage drives Meg and Trevor’s home design in Ontario, Canada. As they considered improvements to their main living space, Meg knew the cheesy, big-box-store lights would have to go.
“We wanted to add some interest to the ceiling as it is quite high and we had plain flush mount lights with no real interest,” Meg explains. “We spend most of our time in this room so comfort was a definite feel requirement.” The couple have an eclectic mix of items in their home including a lot of ethnographic African art mixed in with rustic industrial touches.Read More
