Barn Lights

(Edited 10/14 – the giveaway at Barn Light Electric is now closed.  Waiting to see who won.

I’ve changed the title from the original to avoid confusing people. Thanks!)

It seems that barn style light fixtures are all the rage right now. 

Have you ever priced them at an antique sale?

Eek! They’ve become way too expensive for my pocketbook.   You can certainly tell by the prices that these are hot items!

Then I found out that Barn Light Electric is hosting a giveaway of barn style lighting fixtures!

Why, they’re giving away one prize each of  $1000 or $500 worth of their fabulous lighting!

Lots of my blog friends have entered by blogging about the giveaway. 

Today I read Anita’s post (from a couple days ago, sorry Anita, I’m way behind in my reading) and said, what the hey, I should enter this too.

So what if it’s at the 11th hour, right? 

So I went browsing through their website and promptly fell in love with these particular models:

This gooseneck sconce in porcelain on steel finish is amazing.  I love the look of this!

I’d put one on either side of the fireplace mantel, that’s what I’d do.


Love this Barn Light 10” warehouse sconce in the galvanized finish.  It would look so cool on the back of the garage, to go with my updated outdoor kitchen.


This stem mount all weather farm light in galvanized would look great too.

This Ivanhoe pendant was a little fancier, love the peek-a-boo slits on the neck!

The porcelain enamel coated lights in hunter green especially intrigued me.

Look how pretty this is with the brass fixture.


I found this next light on their vintage page. It looked very familiar to me.

See?  I have one just like it!  Got it for $10 at the Bouckville Antique Festival.


Wonder if I can convert this one to a gooseneck style like the one above?

Good thing Barn Light Electric also sells parts!


It’s got a couple of rusty dings around the edges, but that made me love it all the more.


I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed that I win, but just in case I don’t, I think I’ve come up with a backup plan!
