The Chandelier


I bought this chandelier before we moved from Colorado and I had planned to have it put up for Bryce's Father's Day gift....last year.

Well, it finally got done.

I love it.

I rewired it and made the sleeve for it.

We spray painted it white.

My friend put a little color on the flowers and leaves, which you could see better if I knew how to operate a camera effectively.

I do not have a picture of the previous light.

Why in the world would I take a picture of a groady, 80s single bulb light?

I plan on making a cushion for the reading nook and a new curtain, currently hating the one I put up previously, this weekend.

Do you have any plans?

Have a good weekend.


P.S. One of our chickens is dead. Our neighbor's dog broke through their fence and found one of our poor defenseless chickens.

It's a good lesson for our kids about death, life after death, and forgiveness.


  1. sooooo sad about the chicken!

    light look awesome!

    enjoy your projects!

  2. the chandeler...makes me wish I enjoyed yard saling and estate sales...

    I was enjoying a few moments on pinterest (even though I swore I would NEVER join I still take pleasure in it) and I found this and though of you

    It is a recipe for Twix bars! Fun!
