We recently made a major move from Florida to Texas. We decided to rent a house so that we could check out different areas before we purchase a home. A rental house certainly has its challenges. Two of those challenges are the chandeliers in the breakfast room and dining room. Yes, I believe they are the original 1980's generic box store builder grade variety. Need I say more, they were ugly in 1980 but needless to say they are here. We will temporarily replace the dining room light with another that we brought with us. But I didn't want to buy a new one for the breakfast room at this time. Let me tell ya, I have been racking my brain trying to think of what I could do with it, besides burying it. LOL Well, today was the day that I couldn't take it anymore. A light bulb went off and I got busy rummaging through the house and garage. To the linen closet I ran to dig through fabric and then a bee line to garage to find some decorations and beads. The Christmas decoration box in particular, I know they're in here somewhere. The garage must have been 100 degrees but determined I was in trying to find them. Alas, there they are, but the one I want is on the bottom, go figure... Anyway, I think I turned an ugly duckling into a graceful swan in no time flat. The best part is that it didn't cost a single penny. Gotta love that.
