Hey there, friends! I hope you had a truly wonderful weekend. It’s hard to believe it was the last weekend in July. Where is the summer going?
It was a pretty good weekend here. On Saturday my friends and I visited Tasting In the Wilds, a local wine and beer festival. We try to get there every year and always have a fabulous time.
I didn’t play all weekend, though. I’m pleased to report that I made some progress in my bedroom. As with my closet, this room needed crown molding, so I cut and installed that on Friday.
Also, I decided to move the ceiling light. When this home was turned into a B&B, walls were added so that closets could be repurposed as bathrooms. The result was that a couple of the ceiling light fixtures were off center. Because of the planned location of the bed in this room, it drove me bananas, so it had to be moved.
Moving the fixture meant that I had to patch a rather large whole in the ceiling. I spent most of the weekend patching, sanding, waiting for the spackle to dry, and cleaning up the dust. A dirty job, but someone has to do it.
I was hoping to at least get the ceiling painted, but it just didn’t happen. So, I’m now planning on carving out some time this week to get the entire room painted. Then, I can finally move onto the fun stuff!
While this isn’t too exciting, nonetheless it’s progress.
Also, I’m trying to figure out what light fixture to get for this space. I’d like something a bit different that is light and airy. Right now I’m considering these two: this Gold Capiz Chandelier from West Elm or a large (left), round capiz shell pendant from Restoration Hardware (right). Again, the color palette for this space is jewel tones.
I like both. I’m obviously attracted to the gold one because you know me and gold. A friend of mine said it was too feminine, but as you can tell from my existing style, I don’t really care too much about that. I prefer blurring those lines when it comes to decor.
Let me know what you think. Have you been loving any particular light fixtures lately that you think might look fab in my new space? I love picking out lighting, so it’s killing me I don’t already have something for this space. Help!
