a pinteresting summer, pt 2

i sweat a lot today. heat and humidity - deadly combination. my eyelids are sticking to themselves. it is uncomfortable. so, today's project has been in the works for a couple weeks. i bought the chalky pink spray paint from krylon, and used it on my sconces. so here ya go:



this last one is my favorite because it is that chalky light pink.

so, after too much time in the sun, sweat dripping off my eyeballs, i finished.

the wiring was an absolute buggar! you hold your hands above your head with your neck at a 90 degree angle while standing on your dining table. there were several moments i thought i was going to pass out. the boy was standing up there with me, holding the chandelier up so i could focus on the wiring and rigging. i had to start over from scratch and redo it, but i'm much happier with how it hangs now. no twisted wires. it's going to look sweet once my walls are painted egg blue. technically, liquid blue from sherwin williams.

here's a preview of what is next:

i will be making this light fixture, but i will add ivory jute to each mason jar to filter the light some and keep it from being too much of a glare on the eyes. the main part of renovating the kitchen involves taking down a wall that separates the kitchen from the living area. once that is down, the kitchen will be fully in view. i want the light in the kitchen to be pleasant and not too bright. it will have 8 bulbs. 8!! i plan to do led lights that will last an eternity, so the beauty will be maintenance free (aside from the occasional dusting). i'm so excited!

until next time, happy crafting!
