To THIS!!! (painting was done by diligent husband and me in the 2+ weeks prior to Thanksgiving....planned on having the room done a week before company arrived...it was finished 10 minutes before picking up my sister and BIL from the airport!) The color is Valspar's Cooper Adobe Brown and it is AMAZING!!! Chocolate/grey/charcoal deliciousness..changes with the light and makes the space soooo cozy! More photos of that later....
...But back to the TA-DA light fixtures:
Jane snagged for me...who knows where she found them...but they originally looked like this:
new bulbs were added to mix some mod in with the old. And to eliminate the need for globes or shades of any sort b/c most of them are ugly anyway. I love them. I love my dad. The attic guest room thanks him!
