Hello everyone! I hope that y'all had a wonderful Thanksgiving! It has taken awhile but we are finally getting back to normal everyday life and things are coming together around the new house. I won't lie it has all been more than a tad overwhelming at times but as we check off things from our to-do list I feel so much better.
|Today I am sharing an update, well actually kinda two updates with our breakfast nook. This pic was taken on closing day back at the end of October.|
|One of the first things I knew I was going to be doing was to change out the light fixture in the breakfast nook. It was way too modern for my taste. Before I share can I tell y'all just how much my cross buck door and floor make me happy!?|
|Back to the lighting,Mr. Front Porch has been a good sport because over the Thanksgiving break we changed out light after light after light in the new house.|
|Here is the new breakfast nook light. Sorry the pic was taken at night but I am back to my crazy night owl hours and thus at 2 am this is what ya get when taking pics. Did I mention I am completing this blog post at 2 am as well!;) I digress again.:)|
|This was one of the first lights that I had purchased back in the spring. I loved how it looked when we hung it up. Then I started decorating for Christmas and decided that the candelabra sleeves were too plain. If you remember last year around this time I jazzed up our kitchen sink chandy by updating the candelabra sleeves with a quick DIY. I could have completed the same project this time around but honestly I did not have the time for that. If you missed that make over or just want to see it again click here.|
|Since I was not taking the time to DIY I ended up ordering some new sleeves off of Amazon.|
|I am so pleased with how they look!|
|I know it is hard to tell with the lighting but trust me when I say it gives new life to the chandelier. Such an easy update! As you can see I have Christmas happening in here and hope to get it completed this week and will share. Then y'all can see the chandelier in the daylight.|
Thank you for continuing to follow along with me on our journey this year. It has been a long year and I know that I have not been around as much but I promise in the new year I will be back to sharing up a storm! Did I mention I have a to-do list!?;)
Do not forget to keep checking back for my holiday decorating posts! They are coming soon I promise!
