New Hunter ceiling fan "before..."

It's a great fan. But that light had to go. For me personally, a bowl light is best for a bedroom. Or a den. Not a kitchen. Especially when I like to do my sewing at the kitchen table. These old peepers of mine must have bright light.

So here was my idea.
All I needed was a can of spray paint and my sweet hubs' brain to figure it out...

We also decided it was time to say so long to an old friend. This little guy served us well over the years. But we wanted to upgrade to a large Jotul wood stove.

Hello, gorgeous!
While most woman swoon over diamonds and clothing. I prefer wood stoves and lighting.

Let's see... We need to make a larger hearth pad. I need to touch up the stove pipe with spray paint and I need to hem my curtains. Just add these to my projects list!

That's it for today.

Happy Thursday, all!!

I'm still determined to find a spot to hang the ol' candelabra I had in the kitchen. I already broke the news to my sweet hubs.


I thought about swapping out the glass shades with old clear canning jars. But I have concerns about the heat from the bulbs in the enclosed jars. Have to do a little more research on that.

I love the way the ceiling fan looks with your changes. The new stove is gorgeous and perfect for these chilly bights. Can't wait to see where you put the candelabra.

Thanks, ladies! That wood stove is the cat's meow!! I'm never leaving my kitchen! :> )
Phyllis, I'll figure out something.
Or maybe I need to be on one of those "letgo" commercials.
Nah!! ((giggle))
