My favorite room of my house



(this was the best pic I could find - when we were doing the backsplash)

1. I love our kitchen. We have been in this home for 1 1/2 years, and put our heart and soul into making this kitchen our own.

2. I love many different styles, but I have to say that I am mostly traditional. I love clean lines, symmetry and antiques!

3. My favorite item in this room is my chandelier! This house had a 1980's ceiling fan originally. I purchased a regular light fixture from Lowes (I can say that, right? HA!) but never was very happy with it. While shopping at an antique store I came across this fixture and fell in love! It was the perfect size and the perfect style for me! I purchased it knowing I would need it rewired - which I then did myself (my first rewiring job, I might add). I am so proud of my job and how pretty it looks!

What a wonderful job. Rewiring is scary, but I am sure you are glad you did it. I love power tools too. You can tell you put your heart and soul into the kitchen. Great job.

I'm noticing the angle of the stove...how intriguing. I can see where that would make a lot of sense for extra space. I really like your chandelier, too.
