“I’m interested in having fun with ideas, throwing them up in the air like confetti and then running under them.”
I’ve really been having fun pulling together pieces for the gallery wall side of the living room. Little by little, it’s coming together! I noticed it’s a little dim over there at night though, so I had an idea to flank the gallery with wall sconces instead of two more framed pictures. I had some Pottery Barn bonus bucks burning a hole in my purse, and I was so excited when I discovered their polished nickel Kira sconces were 50% off. The only problem was I didn’t want polished nickel Kira sconces. I wanted oil-rubbed bronze Kira sconces…which, of course, aren’t available anymore.?
I didn’t know if spray paint would stick to the slick, shiny metal, but we decided it was worth a shot, so we went for it…and it worked!
We got the cord covers at Home Depot, and I don’t *love* that they’re visible, but that’s what I get for not installing wall sconces when that planked wall was under construction. Oh well.
You wanna know what’s really got me on Cloud 9 this week? SWEET P’s BUDDY SAMUEL IS COMING HOME!! 😀
Kevin and I are road-tripping to Louisiana to welcome and take photos for them at the airport on Saturday. I could turn into confetti just thinking about it!!
