Remember this little table?



Remember this little table?


Well like always, I couldn't keep my hands off of it.


While painting it, I thought that I would regret it.  But now that it is done...... I don't.   I kept flip flopping back and fourth on whether or not to paint it.  After long consideration, I went for it. Next month we will be installing laminate wood flooring in my home and I thought it would probably blend in a little to much.

I also changed over a ceiling fan in my dinning room.  I chose to go with this 70's wicker light fixture.  It was brown, of course I painted it Ivory.




I found this gorgeous fabric in L.A. and asked my friend to make curtains for me.


She did great job.  Now our neighbors in the 2-story home next to us, cant peak in while climbing their stairs during our dinner time.



I also painted another gold, very goddy picture frame that was given to me.  I hung it above my front door and added a "love" sign in the center.  This window above my door peaking on the lower half of the picture will also get a curtain.



Thanks for coming by.

    1. Actually yes. The light had a plug in fixture and we wanted it hard wired where the ceiling fan use to be so that we could use the light switch, so my husband cut the wire at the length we wanted it to hang and wired it into the ceiling, we also had to use a ceiling medallion to hide the hole from the fan. It seemed easy black (negative) to black and red (positive) to red. :)

    1. Thank you! I have to tell you that I love reading everyone's comments. My whole family, and I mean EVERYONE doesn't understand my love for old, crusty, dirty, vintage things. So you guys are the only people that understand me :) I often hear "ughhh why do you want that?" or "your such a trash collector". So its great to hear comments like you have left. Thank You.
