Chandi for White Wednesday

This is definitely one of my favorite GW finds ever... I found it 5 or so years ago and saved it in a box until I had THE house it belonged in.
I love it in the dining room. This is the room I'm getting ready to paint can't wait to give it a facelift! I do like the blue/gray walls but I really want more of a neutral so these will be my BEFORE pics and I am right now as we speak wearing my painting clothes so today is the day! I gotta say... blogging has really helped me clear away some of the clutter in my house! You just cannot take a pic with all of the usual junk that gets left on that skinny counter! I mean really, you would think I would worry about 'what if someone stopped by' but NOOOOO As soon as I get the camera out the counters get a good going over too! My husband says thank you to the blogging world for this, he hates clutter:)

O.k. like I said today is the day so I need to get off of the computer and tape a paint brush to my hand so I don't get distracted and forget why I'm dressed like this!!!!! Head on over to fadedcharm and see the rest of the party peeps and I'll meet you there maybe tonight when I'm too exhausted to do anything else but sit on the couch and blog hop! Thanks for stopping by,
Theresa xoxo


  1. Love, Love, Love that Chandi ~ so happy it has the Perfect Home..... Can't wait to see Your After Pics~ Have Fun

  2. I can't wait to see how it turns out.
    The worst is taping good luck with it all.
    Don't be drawn like a magnet to the computer until you are done.
    Blogging is like a tv show, you have to wait til tomorrow or next week to see the end.

    Have a wonderful WW.

  13. The GW find is outstanding. When you paint, I hope that the sconce arrangement on the wall fits it with the decor, it is quite beautiful.

  14. Hi Theresa,
    I love your chandelier! Wish I could stumble upon one of those finds. I stumble upon them, but never at times when I can afford them. Patience is a virtue, I keep reminding myself. One day!!!

    Hope the painting is going well. I am glued to my tv watching the Olympics. I haven't missed a second of them in the last two days. I can feel my couch molding itself to my butt. Or maybe the other way around. Sigh... I should be doing something more productive like laundry/cleaning or painting, but the winter Olympics only come every four years. The laundry is always there for me. I can't wait to see your after pictures! Have a good weekend with that brush stuck to your hand. It will be worth it when it's all done!

  15. Such a lovely and exquisite chandelier. Good luck on the paint job!
