The Light

Hi, sorry for the absence yesterday, we were dealing with a very large pine tree that tried to take out our house. We are fine, Harry (dog, the only one home at the time) is also fine although I think he needed a Xanax and the house is fine for the most part but it was craziness nonetheless. Anyhoo, I had several e-mails about the light in the soon to be nursery...I found it in an antique store months before Patrick and I bought our house 4 years ago and it stayed in the back in my car for a lonnnnnggggg time but I knew I wanted it. The store thought it came from a restaurant probably from the 50's but that is all I know, sorry I wish I knew more.
I do love this light, but it is not staying in the nursery. I have another light I want to use (if it ever comes, I am starting to doubt I will ever see it). This light will go to a good home though, our guest room! I can't wait to have a different light in there, it has been neglected for way too long.

It's beautiful. I'm glad to hear that you and the family are well. We've had some big storms here that damaged homes and cars too.

It's really nice! I like the reflection of the design on the walls.

I'm sorry to hear about the storm... good thing you guys are okay.

Enjoy your day!

Summer storms can be scarey for sure. Glad you are all well.
Did you paint the light? It looks golden in one picture & white in another.
Either way...I admire it every time you show a picture of it.

It has a great shape to it. I have not seen a light like that before.

Hi Marianne. What a great find! It looks great painted white. I can totally see where you are going with the nursery. Congrats on the little one.
