I've been having a love affair with a chandelier for 2 years now. I would go to the website, put it in my cart and then think...oh forget it, our kitchen needs major work, I'm not putting this up...someday, with a nicer kitchen/dining room. And so my thought process went. This is the object of my affection:
And then I bought a new Howard Miller clock for the dining room wall (love it too!). This one:When Don hung the clock on the wall, I said...whoa, stop the presses, this will not do! This gorgeous clock cannot live on that wall...so I started ripping off the country wallpaper. We worked for a few days, even rented a steamer...finally we called experts and had things fixed. Nothing big, new paint and trim, etc. It's not the end of the kitchen work, we have major projects ahead, new cabs etc. But I wondered, what if I die without having lived with the chandelier I love? So now it is here. And up. The chandelier is mine! (Ballard Designs) Lesson learned. I can't fix everything perfectly but I can do this.
This isn't my house but I love this picture anyway.
Let there be light!
