We’ve been busting our butts to get the master bathroom done, but other areas of the house are completely neglected. First impressions are important, and this is that we’ve got:
Not completely untouched. We did remove a small arch that was over the railing, along with a few pieces of crown that were around it.
Our friends wanted the Tiffany style Fleur de Lis light, so we gave it a new home. So really, at this point, it looks worse than it initially did. Hopefully this summer we’ll replace the windows and front door for something more energy-efficient. I’m hoping to cover up the knock down texture with a wall treatment, too. New crown while we’re at it.
The light box is centered on the dividing railing, which kind of makes sense, but also kind of drives me crazy. Moving it over about 6 inches would center the light on the window and door.
Speaking of lights, we ordered the Mobile Chandelier from West Elm mid-December.
When we placed the order, it said the fixture was back ordered until January 20th. Now it says April 1st. Fingers crossed it’s still January, though I haven’t gotten an update. While we have the big ladder out to hang the light, we’ll get this big, bad bottom dude up:
My grandpa got these Longhorns in the late 50’s, then gave them to my mom before he passed away. I told my mom I had the perfect place for them, so she gave them to me.
Perfect sculptural, manly addition to the entry. They’ll fill up the wall without looking busy, and I love the sentimental value.
Our little console is still working well.
Man, I really want to paint over the peachy paint. Sadly it makes the most sense to wait until we’ve replaced the windows. I’d rather not climb a high ladder more than I have to.
