I made some great progress yesterday on Gwen’s dresser and chest of drawers transformation. Ready to see?
Her dresser went…
And her chest of drawers went…
Here’s a closer look.
so I couldn’t put it back on for the picture.)
Okay, I heard that! Yes, I heard what you just said!
Don’t worry. It was actually quite intentional. I assure you, they’re not finished yet. I’ll be back at it today, and I hope to finish them and show you the final “taa-daaa” tomorrow.
In other news, the bedside chandeliers were installed today, and they’re beautiful!! I couldn’t find pendant lights that actually looked like the ones in my initial design plan for the room.
But I’m actually glad I couldn’t find those, because the ones we decided on are much prettier.
Isn’t that lovely? I just love the simple, understated elegance of this little chandelier. And of course, there’s a matching one on the other side of the bed.
The colors in the photo above are pretty accurate (at least they are on my monitor), but I just love the glow of the light in this photo…
And of course, since I know nothing about photography, that was quite by accident. (Isn’t it sad that the daughter of a professional photographer only knows how to point and snap?!)
I just love bedside chandeliers. For those of us in hotter climates who need our ceiling fans, bedside chandeliers are a great way to keep the functionality of the ceiling fan in the room, while adding the elegance and shine that come with a beautiful chandelier. And as much as I hate the way most ceiling fans look, take it from this Texan…you do NOT mess with a Texan’s ceiling fan, especially when the temp is creeping ever closer to that dreaded three-digit number.
I’m so thrilled with how Gwen’s bedroom and bathroom are turning out. I’m working as hard and as quickly as I can, because I’m anxious to get to the final “after”!!
Well, I’m off to finish a dresser and chest of drawers. 🙂 Have a great day!!
