Guest Room – The Finishing Touch

What a busy week since my first blog post and I must say I am loving this blogging. I have received a lot of really nice comments. My thanks to all of you.

I’ve been trying to finish up in the guest room. I wanted to replace the ceiling light fixture that was there with a chandelier but didn’t want to pay the price of what one would cost. See pic below of ceiling light fixture.

So, I went to one of my favorite places to shop, The Patuxent Habitat for Humanity Restore and look what I found.

A chandelier and a window frame. The chandelier I paid $15.00 for and the window frame I paid $10.00 which I have plans for that as well. I probably could have found those items cheaper at a yard sale but I wanted it now and you never know how long it would have taken to find a chandelier especially since it was exactly what I was looking for and not to mention shopping there is for a good cause.

I primed and painted the chandelier and I absolutely love how it turned out.

Isn't it nice to have a room completed (even if you know there is another one down the hall that has yet to be started!) Can't wait to see what great ideas you come up with for your sewing room.
