Remember when I told you in my last post I had bought something at the thrift store for $5.25 after much debate? It was the item that was still there after the weekend that I thought about it. Well, it is done thanks to Steve. I really wanted to do it, but he was excited and wanted to see it done.
So... the before
Nice bright and shiny gold...ewwwwwwww
So Steve tried to straighten out the arms so that it sat straight on the table and ended up breaking one of the welds. I was mad and walked out of the room. Uh hello please be a little more careful with my high dollar items here. LOL. Anyway, he fiddled around with it and got out some JB Weld (or something like that) that is a liquid weld and smeared it on to fix the arm. It had to sit for 24 hours before anything could be done. While I was at work the next day he sanded up the light to prepare for paint. Out to the garage it went for painting... The next day after work he stopped at the prim store here in town in search of new light bulbs which he bought. He hung my light and decided the bulbs were to dim for the dining room. So back in the bright bulbs went.
So the reveal... tada... I still need to darken the white plastic sleeves or find new candle looking ones to complete it. But I love this more "colonial" look for the dining room.
Other than that not much going on except Steve and I have decided to be "in a relationship" as they call it on Facebook LOL. And yes I'm on Facebook if you wanna be my friend email me and we'll get hooked up. It feels corny calling someone your boyfriend again. LOL. Unfortunately, though what I thought would happen is happening on the new fire department I'm on. I am being scouted out by the men on the department. I've had two ask me out. I thought I made it clear that I was there doing a job not looking for a husband or boyfriend. Uggghhh... I told Steve though what is happening and he seems OK because I told him I never wanted to date another public service person again. Anyway, I need to get going and get something done today since I work tomorrow again.
