I was scrounging in the barn a couple of days ago, and noticed an old galvanized funnel way up on the top shelf over hubby's workbench. My mind started grinding away, and I wondered how it would look as a light over my sink. I have a galvanized light picked out that I love, but it would cost me around $100 with tax and shipping. Here's a picture of it. It's just not in my budget right now. Sigh...
I love the curvy lines, the galvanized finish. Sigh, again... Maybe later I will get it, but in the meantime I need to know, honestly, what you think about my funnel. I love the farmhouse, industrial feel of it. On the other hand I don't want it to look like Sanford & Son.
I just tied it onto the existing bare bulb light to get a feel for it. Obviously the old light is coming out, but you can pretty much tell how it will look. So what do you think?
Keep in mind that the cupboard doors will look a lot like those at Recaptured Charm, except they will have beadboard wallpaper in the panels:
There will be beadboard on the kitchen walls (bottom 1/3 or so), but probably not the backsplash, because water will make the beadboard my husband can get from work swell. The counters are going to be painted with Giani countertop paint in black granite, and I will do some kind of tile on the backsplash I think. The stainless steel appliances will stay. The stainless steel sink will have to stay for now too. Someday I want a farmhouse apron sink.
I really, really love the drawer pulls I bought on ebay:
So, considering all that, does the funnel look cool, or just plain redneck?
