At last!

I’ve been mired in indecision, trapped in a torpor. Bugger it I had lost my mojo. Then when one of our advertisers offered me some chairs to try out I jumped at the chance. Yes. I started work on the dining room. I have ignored that poor room ever since it was painted dark blue a few years back. I just couldn’t make it work. Well I could if I used furniture from other parts of the house but then those rooms would look like crap. What’s a girl to do if she doesn’t really have the money to splurge on a room she doesn’t use.

In able to take semi-decent photos of the bentwoods in the room for the sponsored post I had to come up with something, anything. Then it hit me. The wooden bead chandelier. I had bought it after visiting the trade fairs in Sydney in February. I confess I could only really afford it because I got it wholesale through the shop. Retail and I would have had to say no. Too much money! Especially when we have lots of real jobs to do around the house. It was originally earmarked for the living room (which still has a bare bulb hanging from the ceiling … now you know my dirty secret and why I don’t take photos of said ceiling) but if I used it in the dining room … hummmm … wheels turning, brain working, mojo firing …. Yes!

I still have to pick up more chairs or perhaps I’ll mix old and new bentwoods. Artwork needs to be worked out and hung but I’m on my way. YAY!
