Joseph and I had a ridiculously productive weekend. We have a lovely double date with the Dailey's on Friday night:
Then on Saturday we ran all sorts of errands, including going to Hobby Lobby for frames for our gorgeous signed and numbered steampunk Star Wars pieces.
Behold the final products!
They replaced Jacques Rhinó above the fireplace:
They look so awesome, and I just want to stare at them. But I won't, because that would be weird.
Anyhow, that's not all we did! I've had a new chandelier sitting in the guest bedroom for weeks now, and Sunday (after a lovely Saturday evening football party) turned out to be the magical day that we hung it. I don't think the badassery of this chandelier can be overstated, but you can decide for yourselves. We have yet to get a real dining room table and chairs, but what we do have works just fine for now.
First, a before shot. Please note the horrendous pendant (in all fairness, you can't really see it here, but it's bad):
The process (warning, dreamy shirtless boyfriends ahead):
|Fun with wires in ceilings!|
|Nom nom nom.|
|Narsty old pendant detached from ceiling. See what I mean now?|
Aaaaaaaand, end results!
|The shadows are phenomenal, and not quite as extreme in real life. That would probably be a bit too phenomenal.|
Lights off (it's really dark because it was raining all day):
