One decision made


This is the pendant that I have decided on for the kitchen. One large one like this for the center and then 3 small ones to illuminate the sink and counters. You can't tell from the photo but the glass part of shade is faceted. It has an "old" feel to it without being too country. For the dining room, I have a brass chandelier that I pulled out of my son's trash can. It didn't go with their decor so they replaced it. I don't like the look of the shiny brass so I am going to paint it white and antique it. This should be interesting!

Now the search is on for a Windsor chair for the dining room. I have one antique that has been passed down in the family and I KNOW I can't afford to buy even a good reproduction. I am thinking maybe a pseudo-Windsor chair that come in a honey oak finish that I could paint. Know what I mean?

What I really need is a good yard sale in my area. They do the community yard sales in May and I don't think I want to wait that long!

That will provide lots of light for the kitchen...believe you me that is one room I want with plenty of light...like I told my remodeling guy I want it "operating room" bright..did not want any dinky light fixtures..let the light shine...

I like the light, and yes I agree a dark kitchen is just not going to work! Have fun with your painting projects, I bet you can find that chair before May :>)!!

Lovely light similar to the Chandelier I have in my dining room - from Lowes.

Brilliant minds??!!
