I have spent more time looking for and deciding on lighting than on anything else for Old Salt Farm, other than the initial plans. I think I've seen just about everything there is to see when it comes to farmhouse lighting...twice! It's not about it being difficult to find things I like--more like the the opposite. I have found so many lights that I love, but it's trying to figure out what will look best in the space that takes me a little longer. That...and the price.
We are on a definite budget, and lighting can be EXPENSIVE. There's nothing like finding an adorable chandelier, than discovering it's at least $600 over what you can spend! Don't get me wrong--sometimes splurging on a beautiful chandelier or awesome barn lighting can be totally worth it, but when you're buying all the lighting for your entire house at the same time, it's harder to do. Since I've already scoured for some of the cutest and most affordable farmhouse lighting, I wanted to share them with you!

All of these are under $100, except the Wood Bead Chandelier and the Round 12-Light Edison Chandelier, and they're under $300. One of the lights on this list, the Chicken Wire Pendant, is actually a plug-in light, not hardwired, which means I couldn't use it in our new house, because I already had electrical boxes in place. Make sure you read all the fine print when you find lighting you like, to make sure that it will fit what you need.
