We finalized all of our lights last month and the orders have been trickling in daily. Install isn't for a few more weeks, but it's been fun to sign for these deliveries and see some of our choices come to fruition. We are capping the lights in our informal dining room until the kids stop stabbing forks into the dining table (at which point we'll get a long farmhouse table). So in basically 6 years we should be ready to install the lanterns. I kid...I hope.
We're also reusing the lantern from our current dining room in our foyer. I wasn't sure what I wanted to put in the foyer and I didn't want to make an expensive mistake. So we'll live with our lantern for now and that will buy me a year or so to decide on the size and shape of something for the main entry.
We finalized our exterior lighting as well and scored an awesome deal on our lamp post since it was a discontinued Martha Stewart Lighting post. Our vendor did an incredible job finding affordable wall sconces that matched the post from another company. And after a bit of a wiring debacle wherein our exterior lights were wired in the wrong place completely (thankfully I noticed before the siding went up) we managed to get everything fixed. I think the exterior lights are some of the last things to go up at the house.
