Since this room is more of a Study now, we wanted to give it a gallery lighting affect. An easy way to accomplish this is by the use of track lighting. Using can lighting is intrusive and can be expensive, and spot lighting needs to be wired in various places in the room. With track lighting, you can focus on a certain object by directing the light beam to it, from a central spot.
Here is my trusty handy hubby, doing the heavy lifting. Thanks sweetie!!
We bought this track light in IKEA for less than $50. One interesting feature we liked about it, is that the outer light poles can bend in or out to accommodate your needs. We opted to leave them open here, because this is a rather large room and when the outer lights were bent in, the fixture appeared so small that it seemed to disapear into the ceiling.
We extended the table to accommodate the larger fixture. Hubby does not find that the change in the dining room made a big difference, but I bed to differ!
