I really love a bargain. No. Really. I don't buy much of anything unless it is on sale or I have a coupon. That makes renovating the house a difficult task. Building supplies are not often on sale. And the cheap things are often cheap for a reason.
About a month ago I was at a local big box home improvement store looking for paint on the mark-down shelves. I didn't find the paint that I wanted but I did this:
This is going to replace this light in the hall.
Isn't it ugly? Can't wait to get it replaced.
The best part of this new light?
Yup. $2. Was $12.58. I was very excited. I normally prefer brushed nickle for a finish but for $2, this is fine. And it is way better than that is there now.
