Hi Everyone! Thought I would share a few things that I have been meaning to post. I also have a hidden agenda for tonights post....I need your opinion on something.....But first off here are a couple of yard sale finds:
These really cool jars, I got four of them for $1.75
I tied twine around them and added a tea light candle and hung them in my back yard.
Bottles in a perfect brown glass one of which reads "Purex" and another that reads "Clorox". A perfect addition to my downstairs bathroom. All for $5!
Another jar filled with rusty goodies for $1.
A 7-UP Crate that I turned upside down and put a wired lantern on top, on my porch. I'm not to happy with it here, I'm sure I will move it somewhere else when I find a better spot. I got this for $4.
I have had this awesome vintage window. I have it hanging in my hall/laundry room. I bought this from the Rose Bowl Flea Market last year.
The blog world is full of pallet love! I made this piece over the past weekend. I found two very light pallets at work (my co-workers think I'm nuts) and dis-assembled planks from one pallet and added them to the other. I roughed painted it white and hung it on my wall. I added a "love" sign and a 3 dimensional star. It made this space comfortable and welcoming. I love it. NOW....FOR YOUR HELP:
This is the wall that everyone sees on the way up and down my stair case. I have started a collage of old and current black and white photos. I like the randomness and the uneven spaces between each picture (my house is full of imperfections and that sort of makes it feel like home..) I sort of just add as I get a new picture. Heres my problem, towards the top is a light fixture, this ugly fixture came with the house when we bought it 3 years ago. It was brass, I painted it black. I never removed it or replaced it because it is odd shaped and I didn't have the paint color that the house was painted with to touch up.
Fast forward to today. We had a leak in a major pipe in my laundry room and drywall was cut out. This leaves me with....I MUST GET THE PAINT MATCHED....so if I must get the paint color for the laundry room, then I can take down the fixture, paint under it and add another. YES!
What type of light fixture should I put in its place? I would love something vintage rather then new.... I also need to keep the fixture there because it is our source of light to get down the stairs at 3am.
I'm desperate, I don't have any ideas whatsoever!
Thank You so much.....your the best!
