Bathroom Upgrade Part 2: New Light Fixtures and $100 GIVEAWAY!!!

Sunday, September 8, 2013 -

In my last post, I showed you how I took my bathroom lighting from this:

 to this:

Not much of an improvement visually, but just like most renovations, it looks worse before it looks better. Now, let's address the pretty part.

I was recently contacted by the great people from They offer thousands of home products and asked if I would be interested in reviewing a couple. I knew I was planning on upgrading my master bathroom and I thought a pair of new vanity lights would be perfect!

When I went to search through their online catalog, I could have taken hours! Literally. There are 3211 vanity lights alone to chose from! You can find plumbing and lighting fixture for any style of home. Their prices are very reasonable as well.

I decided on a pair of Riley Vanity Lights by Kenroy Home in chrome.

                                                    Kenroy Home Riley Vanity Light 91703CH Chrome

Installation was a snap! I attached the mounting plates to the outlet boxes, then it was time to wire.

Time to address safety:

*Before you attempt to work with an electrical wiring in your home, first make sure the outlet is switched off. Then, switch off the power to the circuit at the breaker box. If you are unsure about your electrical abilities, please hire a professional electrician to help you. 

Wiring a light fixture is simple. The video below does a good job of explaining the steps.

Once my lights were wired, I attached them to their mounting brackets, added the glass globes, screwed in some CFL light bulbs, and I was done! All I had to do was restore the power.

I now have 2 upgraded vanity lights. They are beautiful! I love the way they look. My husband loves how much light they provide (way more than the old fixture). Much more our style! 

Thanks to the kind people at National Builder Supply, I am giving away a $100 credit towards any online item! What an amazing gift! $100 could buy you quite a lot on their website.

    I love the light fixtures and paint! What color is the paint you choose. It is the exact color I would love to do in my master bathroom. So pretty. Thank you for sharing with us and for the giveaway.

    1. Thanks Lisa! I wish I could tell you the color, but we bought it almost 6 years ago and now the label is too faded to read! I'm sorry. I know its a Behr color, if that's any help.
