All the feels 

This room give me all the feels.


It’s far from done.

I have pictures to hang 

A beautiful rug to find

The fireplace is a wreck. 

But just take it in

This room has the prettiest floors

Just look at my piano. It’s a story all by itself. 

Today I’m focusing in on the light.


During the bulk of renovation, I had to choose light after light after light. By the time I got to the parlor, I was over it. I chose a random, nothing special pendant light. 

I hated it from day one. 

Recently I have been cruising the internet for a new light. 

This is what caught my eye. 

It’s called an orb.

I like it!!


$300? I don’t think so. I can think of many other things I want to spend $300 on than a light. 

Next best thing? Make it yourself.

A few days later a sweet friend offered me this chandelier. I knew exactly what I would do with it. 


Step one: take it apart


The candle part is what I really wanted. 

What to use for the orbs?

It can’t be too heavy

It has to be able to be screwed into.

Needs to be paintable.

2 @ $6.99 with 40% off of course 


A little spray paint 

Looks like metal huh? 


Another day on a giant ladder hanging it up.

Just look at the beautiful shadows it creates on my beadboard ceiling. 


No longer a ho-hum light in the parlor. 

Loving it!
