Home Lighting Makeover

The post is sponsored by GE Appliances and Lighting. I was given light bulbs free of charge but all opinions are 100% mine.

My bathroom is low on the list of home makeover projects. Even though it needs a face lift bad. The lighting in my bathroom is not optimal for anything. The 80’s light fixtures and dim yellowing light bulbs are not helping the matter. I knew if I was going to stick to my home makeover list I needed to make the bathroom a little more tolerable by at least updating the light bulbs. Join me as I discovered how GE reveal® light bulbs bring out colors & patterns that can go unnoticed. Using these enhanced full spectrum light bulbs for my home lighting makeover & see the clean, beautiful light transform every room.

Let me tell you, I had no idea how much a good light bulb can change a room.

I am using a generic store soft white light bulb in my before pictures. The package states that it’s supposed to give a natural light and help brighten your room. As you can tell from my after photos the generic light bulb is no match for the GE reveal® 75-watt Halogen bulb. I mean come on, really, look how much brighter my bathroom already is!

I had no idea how yellow my bathroom looked before changing the light bulbs. I actually think I may leave the white walls now. I love how white they actually are! HA

Do you see how yellow my shirt looked in the before picture. I had no idea I was seeing the colors wrong in my mirror. Makes me wonder how my make up looked before the Ge reveal light bulbs. I have a feeling I was adding way to much because I was not seeing in a clear light. Forgive me for any clown faces I may have been wearing!

I guess I have some light bulbs to buy this week. I wonder how the rest of my house will look when we get more of the GE reveal® light bulbs. Who knows I may love my whole house and forget my home makeover list. Okay that’s not going to happen but it may have me rethink my color choices!
