We bought these 1920's/30's light fixtures about 4 years ago at vintage shop in Texas and now we finally have them up. That's one thing off the house to-do list. We had to get them professionally installed and it involved making holes in our ceiling so that is what took us so long. Plus the fact that everything costs money, so we have been saving to do this.
So weird to see lights up in that room and though I love it, I also didn't like it just cause I wasn't used to it. Do any of you have to go through that adjustment period when you put something new in? I always do. You get so used to seeing something a certain way, when something changes it is so weird at first.
Next up, is putting up another vintage lighting piece in another room, once we pick it up from getting fixed up and re-wired. There is already an electrical box there, so that should be much easier. I can't wait to change out the standard light fixture that came with this house into something much prettier! We're slowly trekking through our to-do list.
This week's learned and links...
- I love Ben being home.
- Any home re-doing is fun, but stressful and always takes longer (and more costly) than originally planned. I think we won't see any pretty floors in the house until May. Must. Be. Patient. I think white wood floors will be worth it.
- The girls started dance class this week. Brave is quite the serious dancer. I think she was made for this stuff.
- My mom had a biopsy done and we're nervous, but trusting God.
This weekend is a special weekend for us as we celebrate the resurrection of our Lord and Saviour...
2 Corinthians 5:21 "God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God."
