While I was
Last week, I realized that I only had 11 accent plates for my china, not 12. Not sure how I never noticed it before, but since I’ve only ever needed 8, that’s probably why.
So I ran to Bed Bath and Beyond and they were out of stock… so was Belks. Ugh.
On Saturday, my sweet husband decided to find it himself and surprise me with it because he knew that I really wanted it for my Easter table. He called all the department stores in a 30 mile radius, found it, ran out and bought it and surprised me.
How sweet is that?
Meanwhile, he was deep in another project for me. I had been wanting him to hang a chandelier in our bathroom.
I bought it for $100 before we were even married. We used it in our small dining room in the last house, but it’s been in the attic since then. I knew it would be the perfect size for over the tub.
Yes, I know that there are codes about lights and tubs… and I’ll probably have to take it down before we move, but I’m ok with that.
He couldn’t finish the installation because he needed some longer screws. As he ran out the door, he says
I honestly didn’t think anything of it… until I walked up there an saw this:Try not to touch the chandelier.It’s a bit precarious.
A BIT PRECARIOUS???
No, I did not stage this picture. I don’t think I could if I wanted to. Let’s just break this down a bit:
We have wires connected to the ceiling, connected to the light, balanced on a step stool, that sitting on the edge of a the tub, which is not touching the ground.
It kind of reminded me of this:
Thankfully, it all worked out and now have this:
Like the crown in here, it’s an immediate upgrade to the bathroom. I’m going to replace the bulbs with lower wattage and we may install a dimmer on it. Next up is paint! Hopefully I'll get this room done in May!
