We had a gross boob light in our kitchen...so gross that I didn't even honour its memory with a photo. Ideally we would have potlights in there, but when we re-did the electrical in our house we decided to wait until we did a kitchen reno, built out an island, and knew where we wanted our task lighting. Well, then our kitchen reno turned into a gorgeous kitchen facelift with everything staying in the same spot so we didn't do potlights in the kitchen at all.
We finally dealt with the ugly light we had in there by going the retro modern route and replacing the old boob light with a school house fixture:
It was a pendant light, but the Mr. took out the rods and hung it as a flush mount since we don't have a lot of room underneath it (the cabinet has to open up). It is one of those small changes that just makes me happy that it's done, and that I don't cringe whenever I look up at the ceiling!
Similar light available at Home Depot - but you should check in-store, we found another brand that had the pendant light on sale for $39!
