So now that I have told you all about my crazy chandelier/plant frenzy of yesterday afternoon I am happy to report that I actually got the front porch all spiffy today and won’t leave you hanging indefinitely.
Well, kinda. Here is what our door looked like this morning. Please don’t laugh, and no, I haven’t the faintest idea what is etched into our door. It could be some type of native american curse, but I am leaning towards just plain weird.
In fact I am very excited because tonight we spent a whole hour drawing up custom door designs to switch out the door and 70’s side windows to a set of black french doors. Won’t that look great?? The outside has been on our back burner but I really want to add a little curb appeal this year before the frost sets in again…
Now back to our make-over (part 1, part 2 being the new door…).
I saw this chandelier on clearance at HomeSense yesterday for $60 and thought it was mighty cool. But what do I need another chandelier (without electricity mind you) for around the house?
Then I saw another in a different aisle and it hit me that I should hang them over my urns!
Just before that we had picked up some boxwood for the urns. I didn’t want to go too girly and fussy with flowers, specially because it is a covered porch and doesn’t get a lot of direct light. And I like to think these feel a little old-world France or Italy.
So now I just need to:
1. get new french doors.
2. have stucco painted grey.
3. get a new light fixture.
4. actually put candles on the chandeliers…
hopefully not in that order, and hopefully sooner than later.
