1970s Chandelier for the Guest Room



I'm always on the lookout for things I can upcycle and use to decorate my home.  Last fall I found a 1970s wood and antique brass chandelier at the dump.  It was missing the screws and glass shades but I liked the overall look of it so I dragged it home for my guest bedroom.



A few coats of white spray paint breathed new life into this light fixture.  Of course I was so excited to see it painted I forgot the obligatory before shot.   Sigh.   It looked a little like this one (see below) only the wood is oak and was a lighter stain colour.

Open House Sundays #16 - The North End Loft

Welcome to Open House Sundays where we get a personal invitation to tour through a different blogger's house every week!  


This week's tour is courtesy of Laurel from The North End Loft.  Laurel & I became good friends through following each other's blogs. She has been super supportive and inspirational too.  Laurel's kitchen renovation was the one that really made me rethink my own kitchen and remodel it for the 2nd time in 4 years.

Laurel lives in a Craftsman home - my favourite style - and I know you'll enjoy this tour of her beautiful home!

Painting Spree & Sneak Peek at Things to Come

January and February are traditionally slow months for me... It's too cold to work in my unheated workshop, there's nothing much to be done outdoors except shovel snow and the short, dark days make me sleepy and lazy.

That being said, I still have tons of plans - go figure! Here is a sneak peek at what will be coming up on the blog and some of my latest paintings.

DIY Removable & Customizable Dishwasher Panel

Let me say right off the bat that my dishwasher is a bare basic model that doesn't allow for custom panels.  I seem to be the only person in the world who isn't fond of stainless steel appliances and my appliances are all stainless steel... sigh.
