Before, there was a small dome fixture over the sink and a fluorescent strip light over the island. Becky did not even use the island lighting because she did not like the fluorescent glow. I envisioned matching pendant fixtures, and we found several nice options. We went with the Kroby fixtures from IKEA which were priced far below the fixtures at our local home improvement stores ($55 total for both).
The new fixtures were a cinch to install thanks to my handy-dandy husband that we talked into helping with the job! And now Becky has a great updated look plus task lighting that she actually uses!
