While Dale is swearing in the bathroom while installing the pocket door, I decided to hang another free Craigslist score. I'd gotten a tarnished brass fixture with 70s glass hurricanes, I removed the glass and spray painted the brass a nice satiny black (to match the table). I picked up some 2.99 clip on shades at Tuesday morning. I'm thinking I need to do something with the candlestick covers, I got some trim for the shades, and maybe I'll add a ruched cover for the chain -- but I want to live with this a bit first.
just for a nice comparison - here's the original fixture when we bought the place. When you turned the fan on, it rocked like crazy! I replaced this before we moved in, with an IKEA fixture I had, but I knew it was just temporary.
Dale and I went out to dinner last night, and were chatting about our plans after getting the bathroom done (which is progressing s-l-o-w-l-y), originally we talked about adding onto the bedroom for a second bath as our next project, but we are really sick of the kitchen, so we might get started on that next.
