A couple months ago I mentioned that we put a new light up in the dining room, as seen in the picture below. This weekend I found these Calla Lily’s at Michel’s for $3 each, down from $6.99 each (highway robbery?), so I changed up my centerpiece. Internets, these look really good for fake.
At the same time as we installed that pendant lamp in the dining room, we installed this chandelier in the bedroom. I got it on clearance from Home Depot for a little under $50, regular $150, or something thereabouts.
More in context:
This weekend we put a frosted glass peel and stick film over the bottom pane of the bedroom window, which looks out into our neighbor’s side/backyard and into their side windows. You just cut the film to size, clean your window, spray your window with water, and slowly peel and affix the film to the window, then squeegee out any bubbles. The great thing is that if you mess up, or don’t like it later on, it’s simple to remove. I wish I had thought of this sooner, because it is fantastic! It lets light in, but you don’t have to constantly worry about putting the blinds down while you change.
At the same time as we frosted the bedroom window, we frosted the bottom pane of the upstairs bath window as well. It also sees into the side of the other neighbor’s house, and their side window, so we constantly had those blinds closed as well. The bath is not huge, and it’s painted a dark chocolate brown, so now it gets much more light and doesn’t feel so cavernous.
I also mentioned a couple weeks ago that I had printed and framed two images a while back, and this is the second. I collaged together a bunch of animal silhouettes for this print that hands in the bedroom.
I just got home from another publisher event today, and here is my advance book swag. I went a little bit lighter than last time.
