I know I have posted pictures of my master but I did run across these before pictures of the ceiling. I had the cedar installed about 8 years ago, and loved it for a long time. After installing the hardwoods, it was just wood overload for me. My husband really fought me on this [why do men hate to paint wood?]. And when I say fought, I mean he got a big hand in his face with "this coming from the guy who bought this "Armani" suit in China [he is an international pilot] with about 50 gazzillion gold buttons on it" "Please dude, you are not a captain on the Love Boat". The suit cost 30.00, replacing all the buttons cost 100.00. He is a bad shopper.
I got the first light fixture on sale at a lighting store for 50.00. I was pretty pleased with myself, and then my husband was hanging it and it fell off the ladder. Yep...back to the lighting store for another one. Wasn't such a good deal after that.
Wish I still had the broken one, it would look great painted black! I gave the second one to a friend and she painted it black. Dang.
Here is the new one. I actually saw it in a really cool store for 2000.00. Right, wrap it up. Not.
So I saw the basket at Scott's for 150.00 and realized it was the same one, and I could have one made. Done, that I can handle!
I used scrim [very gauzy linen] for the cover, just to soften it a little.
I like the ceiling and the fixture so much better. This gets me to thinking about all the things we end up replacing in our homes. We often buy something cheap, and then just keep going after the look we want. I would be right up there with Warren Buffett now if I had all of those funds back.
Don't think about it.
