I’m Going to Make a Light Out of It!

I was visiting my Dad a few weeks ago at the tobacco greenhouse and I saw a pile of fans.  It went like this….
Fan Before
Me: “Hey, what are those fans for?”  Dad: “Oh, those, they are junk…motors broke”  Me:  “What are you going to do with them?”  Dad: “Nothing” Me: “I want the white one” Dad”: “What for?”  Me: “I’m going to make a light out of it” Dad: “You are just like your Mama!”
And the truth of it was…Will was going to make a light out of it!
It was just the kind of junk I’d been hoping for, that piece that sparked instant inspiration and I knew it would make the perfect light.  The one to replace the builder light that was not my style and the last part of the dining room that needed attention.   The piece that makes me proud that  Will is so handy and he can DIY with the best of them!

I love it!!!
I love the idea of having something repurposed for this space, It gives the room character and makes it feel relaxed.  Here is what we had before at Halloween.
Isn’t it lovely?
New Light
Those peonies from my Mom are pretty swoon worthy too…
Peonies 2
I’ll be back later in the week on how we Will made this fixture. 
Hope everyone has a great week!
