I love the internet, and how Social media keeps me all dialed in…I love Pinterest and Houzz…
but I still, more than anything else…
I love ripping a page out of a Magazine and sticking it on my actual REAL bulliten board…being inspired…wishing and hoping, saving and making my Decorating dreams come true. Such is the case with the Coral Lantern.
But especially the lantern as I was actively looking for a solution to our dark upstairs hallway, and in anticipation the new ceilings and wondering what I would put there, this seemed perfect…plus I was crazy about how she painted them!!!
I found the lanterns on shadesoflight.com
I knew that these Discontinued Jamaica Ticking Patterned Dash and Albert Rugs (show with my new DIY Kitchen Island Post Here) will be the rugs in the upstairs hall.
the celiings are nearly finished. If feels strange NOT to be doing this work myself, NICE, but strange. THIS is just one of those makeovers that is better left to the experts.
so what color for the lanterns???Aqua is too obvious and plus, I have it everywhere! I wanted a new color. If you look closely at the rugs, there is a line of Grassy Green which is much more prominent in person. YES GREEN!!! It goes with everything, it is fresh and looks like a color they might have come in….It complemnts the pinks.
so GREEN it is…I grabbed the lanterns on one of our warmer days…not LIKE today where we have a two hour delay because of ICE!
……and I spiffed up the lanterns…I am leaving the chain and the candle parts inside bronze….
Cost of this makeover… LAMPS $250 and Spray Paint $10…$260 for two dynamite lanterns!!!
and THIS is as far as I have gotten…the REVEAL will hopefully be this week, after the crown moulding is up, the painting is done, the electrical is done and more painting is done…
…..cleaning takes place and THEN I HOPE NEXT MONDAY the hall
will be my MONDAY MAKEOVER and I cannot wait to show you these lamps UP!!!
