New Chandelier Ceiling Fan Light Kit



This was MY inspiration!  I have admired this ceiling fan for years!! Of course the price tag was way out of my range!  So I searched and searched and found this:




However, it too was pricey!  So I would look for ways to decorate and improve the ceiling fan in my bedroom on blogs and pinterest. Ultimately, I did this:

DRUM SHADE ON CEILING FAN POST

This set up worked well and I actually like it.  It looked better than the globe that was there before.  But I still wanted that chandelier light & ceiling fan.  Some day, I would think.

I was looking at the Lamp Plus website one day and saw the light fixture again.  I decided to sign up with them to get notification of sales and coupons, hoping, maybe, one day I could afford this light fixture.

Well, low and behold I got an email from their Lamp Plus Open Box website.  I opened it, looked at their offerings and decided to "search" for ceiling fan light kits.  BINGO!  There she was!  $59 and they only had one.  Without hesitation I purchased it!  And the shipping was FREE!!  Woo Hoo!

Here is a link to this website.  Check it out!  I do recommend it!

And here she is in all her glory!  She arrived yesterday!


For $59 and FREE shipping, I'm happy!

Mailbox post updated with SPRAY Paint!






I guess this was the weekend for curb appeal!  I just finished updating my mailbox!






Here is a photo of mailbox in October 2013.








After doing some research I used this paint.  It went on so easy! No drips!  No mess!








Babe covered the ground and the mailbox with plastic, since I was only painting the post.








I did the actual spray painting!











I think it turned out pretty good!  I use mailbox covers all the time, and the mailbox it self was in good shape!  The black color on the post compliments the new carriage style hardware put on the garage doors yesterday!

Thanks again babe!

Garage Door Make Over - Done!

Today is the 5th anniversary of moving into my Little Bitty Damn Houze!  Yeah Me!  It's been a fun 5 years, making small improvements and doing little, easy DIY's here and there.  

Today my Babe installed Carriage hardware on my garage doors.  


















Lookey, lookey!
This is the door before.  Off to Home Depot!




















This is After!  Excuse the glare!  That is the reflection of the truck in the drive way!


I purchased 2 sets of these. $18 each.

He says he needs a new drill bit ......



























Thanks Babe!  Looks GREAT!


Next: A new mailbox maybe???
