Industrial Pendants

Seems like I see industrial lighting everywhere.  They are very trendy right now.  Trendy or not, I love them.  Something about them draws me in.  Maybe it's the metal caging and exposed Edison bulbs.

They look so good hanging above dining tables or kitchen islands.

What's your take on the industrial lighting craze?  Are you in or out?

Organizing Cords with Washi Tape

With all the electronic devices in our home, it's hard to keep up with the cords.  You see a cord on the counter and kind of know what device it goes to but sometimes you don't know until you try it.  A lot of the plugs are similar.  My husband's phone cord looks a lot like my daughter's tablet cord.  No more guessing now.


This is where we started, a tangled mess of cords.  Many of them were on the kitchen counter or stuffed in a drawer.

 
I pulled out my washi tape and got to labeling.  


I simply wrapped a piece of tape around the cords and labeled them with a Sharpie.



Now when we grab a cord, we know if it's really the one we need.

What do you use to organize your electronic cords?
