We have been 'out on the road' for ten days or so.
Our plan was to stop by and see Middle Daughter and family, do some babysitting while they took a quick 3-day break, then head down South and do a Southern Road Trip.
Middle Daughter has been working on re-doing some of her rooms.
She bought a new table from World Market, which made her old chandelier look a little outdated.
Before our trip, I asked her if she needed any furniture or help with anything. Don't laugh, but I'm always trying to pawn furniture off on our girls.
She texted me the picture above, along with an image of her favorite Pottery Barn (PB) chandelier. I think the PB one she liked was this one or something like it...
She was thinking of replacing her chandy with the PB one.
Ugh...too much work taking a chandelier down!
"Why can't we just paint yours, remove the globes and try the Edison bulbs that are popular?"
She responded she had an Edison bulb and shot me back this photo of one installed without the globe thingy.
With the lights on, the picture makes the silver chandy look like oil rubbed bronze, which is the look she wanted.
I told her we could try to age it down with stain as I did with a chandelier at our last house. I just rubbed wood stain on it with rags while it was hanging up in place (can you spell lazy?)
Post On Fixin' Up The Chandelier
Well, we went another way with it...
but I think it's going to turn out great. You'll have to wait til it's finished to see the final outcome though.
We had to leave early before it was completed due to a dental emergency and family issues. I broke the back of my tooth off the same day we learned Bill's cousin was in the hospital on life support. He died early the next morning so we decided to head home to the dentist and to attend a memorial service.
Life certainly throws you curves...
Thanks for dropping by!
