The end is in sight ...

We have almost finished our current projects, and it's so exciting to start seeing the end result.  It's kinda like our Christmas present to ourselves.  It's really beginning to feel cozy.  On my last update I asked for opinions on hats or no hats for our kitchen chandelier, I took your guidance and picked up some hats for the chandi!

So to recap, here is the original light ... Fancy Boob Light ... Yep, found a pic!  I think I will take this baby to Restore, someone will like it (won't they?)

Here's the new Chandi prior to party hats

And here she is all decked out ...

Thank you everyone who commented, not only does it look good, it casts a much nicer light with the shades.

Also on my last post I gave you a preview of our faux brick, Frank had applied drywall mud to the wall to create the bricks.  This weekend I tackled the bulk of the paint job,  I'm going to give it a break over the holidays then add a little more detail later.

Right now there are presents to wrap, family to visit, eggnog to drink and turkey to be eaten.

To recap here's the before

 During ...


Thanks for stopping by!

Thanks for stopping by my Christmas tour. It takes me only about three days to set it all up but then I add more as I think of new ideas. You new chandy looks great there. Terry

Joanne ... Thanks for stopping by my blog. I love being introduced to local blogs.

Your changes are amazing. It is looking so cozy. Love the glaze on the cupboards and the faux brick wall.

I'll be back to check up on all your changes. Have a great Christmas.

You must be sooo happy with this dramatic change! I am a huge fan of brick. Looks great!

Take care,

Where did you get the first boob light? We broke one of ours and I need to order another.

Hi Lauren, I don't have a response app here so I'm not sure if you will receive this :). The original light was here when we purchase the house, I'm not sure where it was from.
