No, we just added two new things that look old,(This picture is very similar to the ones we purchased)
The light fixtures over the vanities in both the bathrooms needed to be replaced many years ago. One was the one installed when the house was built - back in the 70's. The other one was one of those Hollywood light things - you know the kind with big round bulbs in them. Reason we had not changed them I could not find a vanity light that was a ceiling mount. The design of the ceiling in both rooms has a dropped ceiling portion over the sinks. All fixtures I found were wall mount. Yes, we could have patched the old hole - cut a new one - stretched the electrical lines - the whole bit - but we didn't. We just lived with the old ones.
Anyway, the other day while at Lowe's I asked one of the nice men working there if they had any ceiling mount vanity fixtures. He said yes - one style with choice of two, three or four bulb. The lights could be turned any direction...up - down - left - right. I was so excited. So the next step was to pick the globes I wanted. That part was hard...trying to decide which ones would look best. Finally chose white with a marble effect for one room. For the other bathroom, I chose what I would consider a Victorian look...scalloped edges and the color is soft pearlized gold. Oh yes, the metal part of the light fixture is brown - I think they call it venetian bronze.
The new fixtures are installed - did not have too much trouble. Of course when the old ones came down I knew I would have to do some spot touch ups on the ceiling paint. Did not have any paint to match one of the ceilings -well at least in the right shade of yellow...but you know what? If you add, food coloring to water base paint you can get the color you need. I added too much on the first go around and wound up with a gold...just added more paint - then I achieved the color I needed. In a pinch- a lady has to think out side the box...if you know what I mean. My sweet husband just rolled his eyes when I told him what I did.
Isn't this a cute sign. I spotted this in the "Dollar Store" area of my local grocery store. This store has a complete area with all items at $1.00 - very similar to a small dollar store. The sign is all metal and measures 14 inches long with 7 1/2 inches top to bottom. Just couldn't resist in purchasing it. Had to run back into town later in the day and ran by the store again. Picked up the rest of them (6) off the shelf...I thought one would make great gift for the right person. Also I can picture this being painted and another word being stenciled on it. So don't be surprised if you see this sign (slightly altered) appear in future decorating projects.
Everybody have a wonderful week - smile - and see who smiles back ☺☺☺
