Without further ado, I give you.....
OLD LIGHT FIXTURE
I now give you....the successor of this beast. Drumroll, please.
Those arms swing out of course. This light was a gift from my mom 2 years ago.
Tomorrow is also a big painting day. If any of you get bored enough to actually read the text of my blog, you know that we aren't painting our foyer ourselves because it is 17.5 feet high. I didn't join the circus for a reason, people; tightrope walking and I don't mix.
More big news:
and a close up of those spray painted knobs, please....
In case you can't tell, I painted the doors bright white. I think it transformed the place : )
I will be happy to hit the hay tonight.
Oh, I almost forgot. I used some online inspiration to have a little fun with my stairs. I'm still not 100% on the brown. It looked totally different on the card, in the store, on the top of the sample, in the car, in sunlight, in no light, in my purse, in the cart...you get the picture.
Thoughts? Like it? Hate it? You could live with it? C'mon, I can handle it. I want to do the spindles white and the other parts brown, but Justin wants to do everything in the brown. This was the darkest brown I could find. What is the deal? It is just one coat so maybe that is part of it.
Now, picture that brown part covered in glossy poly and look again? Now what do you think?
I'm hungry for cereal.
