Whenever my mom comes to visit, I can count on her to give new life to our living space. Squeeeeee! Within hours of her arrival, the two of us were plotting to swap out throw pillows, slap a fresh coat of paint on the dining room walls, and brainstorming ways in which we could best utilize an awkward nook in the kitchen. Yep, all of that AND a boat load of yard work took place within the first three days of my parents' visit. For this Type-A task master, it was heavenly, my friends! And since my mom and dad bought Max a table and chairs for his birthday, the useless space in the kitchen seemed like the perfect spot to create a place for the babe to work and play—especially as he gets older. Unfortunately, our creative kid-friendly corner lacked any sort of ambient lighting. I'm talking about a fluorescent nightmare. Oy! As the wheels started turning and we began thinking about our options, the Color Cord Company immediately came to mind. For almost two years I've had BIG ideas to incorporate their snazzy shades and colorful cords somewhere in our house but never really had a NEED until now. I jumped at the opportunity to place an order and I couldn't be happier with the results. I can't wait to share specific details about the pieces we used to transform the space in an upcoming post. Now I can't stop looking around the house for other places to use these budget-friendly and creative light sources. They're SO much fun!!

Oh, and I can assure you that NOTHING about this post has been sponsored. You know that's not my thing!
 I'm just incredibly giddy about good lighting and cute sources. You could say I got it from my mama...
