Week two is about Lighting.
First off, I have a ceiling fan in our master that I literally detest looking at. However, we live in South Carolina, so that eyesore is not going anywhere. I am going to have the light on it capped (it was supposed to have been done this week,) and just try to make it a little less ugly. Eye roll.
Secondly, I was visiting Savannah and stopped in Clutter. It is a consignment store and has some amazing finds. I fell in love with a pair of plaster lamps with columns that needed some TLC. They are totally imperfect: they have chips and cracks, the color is not uniform, but I am in love. (I wish I had a before photo of them: the hardware was covered in rust and they were very sad looking.) I scored the pair for a song at $50.00.
When I got back to Greenville, I took the pair to The Little Lamp Shop in The Rock House Antiques Store. We decided to re-wire them, put on new String Coolie shades, spruce with new finials, and add lucite bases to freshen them up. I could not be more pleased with the end result and they are the perfect statement pieces to flank my bed.
Onwards and Upwards towards week three!
