…since I posted a home project.
This one has been in the works for quite some time.
It has been on my to-do list for over 6 months.
1. I really needed my husbands help to get it hung, and he hasn’t had a free minute.
2. I needed more money to be able to complete the second part.
We have a kitchen bar that I really wanted bar stools at. Those are so expensive.
Along with the bar stools, I wanted my own little version of one of these, hanging above the bar:
I spotted this rustic ladder in Pottery Barn at Christmas time last year and fell in love. The one I saw was different from this. It hung over a festive dining table, and was beautiful.
Not long after I fell in love with the ladder, I found a beat up old trellis at an Antique shop and knew that it was exactly how I wanted to recreate it.
So my hubby surprised me one day, and helped to cross one thing of my honey-do list.
I loved it, but I was not prepared to hang items from it. That is why it has taken me so long to post it. I have been playing with it for a month. Now, it is perfect. It was on my list, but I hadn’t quite figured out what I was doing with it.
The one I saw in PB had these amazing green balls hanging from it. I snatched up some of those earlier in the year. I was prepared with that, but what else?
I thought I might do some sort of lights.
I tried them for a few weeks, but the cords began to bug me.
My kids loved them.
Greenery is just to much right not, but I plan to use some at Christmas, and will add lights then.
I knew I wanted some fun lanterns, but they could not be to heavy or expensive.
Then I found these. I love them.
Just what I was looking for.
After Jonathan got it hung, I wanted bar stools more then ever. I knew that I would have to save my dough.
The day after he hung the “chandelier", I ran in to these little beauties at a thrift store. I knew that I had to have them.
I have noticed in home decorating magazines that more and more people are using unique metal framed bar stools.
I knew that these would be the perfect addition.
Plus, they were the right price. $10.00 for both.
I am so glad that I did not just buy the run of the mill bar stools.
They are a big conversation piece, and very unique.
We have enjoyed using them.
I love looking over my bar, and seeing this great shabby chandelier. It makes the space so much more lively.
As for home projects, I think I am done. No more on my list;
I have to cross scrapbooks off my list. I really need to sit down and create those.
I am leaving you with a little view of my entry way. I added just a few Holiday touches.
I love the fourth of July.
America is such an amazing place to live.
After living out of the country, I can truly say that we are so blessed.
