a post, post Long Beach!

Promised I would include a few photos of our without further adieu...this is my new favourite light...  We had three of these strung over our cool new table with modern steel base ( wood is reclaimed from a Kentucky barn...the metal is salvaged, my older son's girlfriend drew up the design...and my younger son did the welding...I did a little finishing and VOILA!) 

Now, on to the lights!  The lights are also reclaimed wood and give off this amazing soft glow...just love them...
So here is the thought...we have a little niche that will fit a full size bed, but will not fit a pair of am about a pair of these, mounted as sconces, and then, a narrow wall shelf or console...(we're talkin maybe 6-8 inches...)  I am including a before shot of the space (and I do mean before...note the table saw, ready to cut flooring...we are down to the subfloor throughout the main part of the house...we have painted the walls a soft medici ivory, and there is a window seat done in travertine tile...probably making some cushions for that... The space with the broom is a closet to be...creating the door(s) for that...this is so much FUN!   Promise I will send on the photos of the work in progress...for now, may your start to your week be productive, energized and filled with promise! 
all the best,
