Thought you might like to see the latest addition to our breakfast room:
We replaced the lighting with a chandelier I found on Overstock. This was what was there before:
I ordered this one because it was big and it was a good price for the size. Plus, I figured I could make it a little more modern by ditching the shades and adding globe bulbs.
I don’t know about you, but when I order from Overstock, I rely pretty heavily on the customer reviews. Everybody said the same thing about this light. It was a great price but a pain in the neck to put together. After three hours of assembling on a Sunday afternoon, my husband would agree:
I personally think it was worth his effort :)
And, on a side note, Overstock didn’t pay me for this post. I just like to tell you what I think about things because that’s what I do . . .
You might recognize the farmhouse table from our old dining room. I started out using the old chairs in this space, too, but it was amazing what crud my kids could cram into the caned backs. I found these chairs on Craigslist for a great price, and they’re so much easier to wipe down.
Next up? Paint and curtains.
