Before and after

I've had a few requests for an update on my home-reno projects while Dan was gone... sincere? I don't know, but here you are anyway:
Before: previous owner's furniture, no paint, can lighting
After: our furniture (mostly hand-me-downs from Mom & Dad), lots of paint, Great-grammy's chandelier

The rest of the house is unpacked and mostly painted, but not exactly decorated yet, so perhaps we'll have a second installment one of these days.

WOW! It looks great!! Hand-me-downs are the best! My favorite chairs are from my grandparents.

Since your husband has returned...I'll wait patiently for the next installment....

Love it! The chandelier is beautiful and even more so knowing it's a family piece.
