Wisteria Shade Above the Kitchen Table

Every house I’ve moved into has had a ceiling fan in the kitchen.  I sorta get it, I live in Texas and summers are CRAZY HOT!  As much as it makes sense, it just doesn’t work for me.  I much prefer a Shade Above the Kitchen Table!

I’d love for money to not be an issue, but Stud’s industry changes pretty often and rumor has it there maybe a buyout soon so keeping our savings in tact is pretty important.

And so, when I saw this 22″ Round Lampshade at Wisteria’s Tent Sale for a steal, I snatched it up!

Before going home, I swung by my neighborhood home improvement store and picked up a mini pendant for under $20 so Stud could get right to work changing out the ceiling fan over my kitchen table.

It was a very easy switch — instead of using the glass pendant he attached my new drum shade.  I love a Shade Above the Kitchen Table!

So much cleaner looking — and so much more light!

    I am with you. I don’t like a fan above the table because it cools the hot food (you have slaved over)too fast !! Your solution looks great.
