Since the birth of our first child, our not so big house of 1100 sq. ft really has begun to feel quite small. With a highchair, safety gates, and baby toys our house has really shrunk. As I mentioned in an early posting I have been redoing our living room/ dining room area to accomodate our new little one a bit better.
Well the furniture has arrived and the room is pretty much in place (pics to be posted soon). I am still working on the finishing touches however. I still have upholstered cornices to be made for over all the windows, more custom pillows with fun fringe for the sofa, and I am cleaning….cleaning…cleaning out EVERYTHING! I am going through our vast amount of boxes that fill all of our cupboards in the hallway and kitchen/laundry areas. I have frames and candles dating back to my early 20s! So out there are going! There really has been no reason to keep all of this crap. I haven’t had it up in my home (not this one or my previous one) for years and years. Maybe I was waiting for a few extra rooms to “magically” appear so I could put them up? Who knows.
But in any case while looking through the latest Martha Stewart Living magazine, I ran into an ad for a really cool company http://www.schoolhouseelectric.com/. They have fabulous vintage lighting for inside and outside the home. I know my hubby would KILL me if I go ahead with my plans, but I really am loving the following fixtures:
For our kitchen ceiling and in the attached laundry area, but in a smaller size.
For our small half bath off of our bedroom in a brushed satin finish.
