Look-for-Less Lighting

Have y'all been to Lowe's lately? Yea, Lowe's, every town has one right... not really a novelty.  BUT, but.  Lately they have really stepped up their game in the lighting department.  I should know, because I'm constantly drug (yea, drug) to the place with my hubs on his take-over-the-world-like-a-man rampages. Love you, honey. Although I'm not usually a fan of the aisles my husband is into (power tools, big whoop), I make it a must to stop through the blingy stuff.

My most recent trip sort of blew me away. In my experience, Lowe's knows home improvement, sure, but they don't necessarily know style. Until now. Was I in Pottery Barn or Lowe's? Pinching myself on these prices. Are these exact replicas? No, but they are pretty darn close. Oh my gosh. I think in my next life I'd like to come back as a gorgeous chandelier.. or maybe just an owner of one of these beauties. (links under pics)

Convinced yet?  This is not to say I am no longer a Pottery Barn Robot, because I definitely am (love you PB, love you boo).  But, sometimes we do need a little lift in the wallet area.  I have yet to find that money tree! Here are some other cuties I saw that are under $200...

Orb anyone? This would look good in my hubs office

I have a strong feeling that if my husband actually reads this post, I will no longer be invited on said take-over-the-world-like-a-man trips. (...and again, Pottery Barn, I love you, so much).
