This is a continuation of my shopping spree at Ballards Back Room. I showed you my newly created drapes that I made out of a shower curtain, but the other items I bought are being used as they were intended. Imagine that! Ha!
I found this pleated table skirt in a brown checked fabric and used it on the little side table in my sitting room. I know you've probably seen this table a bazillion times. But now it looks completely different. I like this much better.
I think it captures the colors of the room perfectly and it fits the table just right.
I was holding my breath that it would fit because it was non-returnable!
Next, I stumbled upon these unique chandelier shades. They are made of mercury glass. They're heavier than standard shades and fragile. I wasn't sure where I was going to put them. I thought I would use them in my dining room, but they didn't suit the style of my chandelier in there. Drats! They were too dressy for my kitchen and too large for the chandeliers in my family room and sitting room. So, that left my master bedroom. I really like them in there.
Here is a close-up during the day.
This is an antique chandelier that I got several years ago. Unfortunately, one of the bulb sockets doesn't work. It needs to be repaired. So, if you see a light out, you'll know why. It isn't because I forgot to replace the bulb. Ha!
Here it is lit up at night. You can really see how unique the shade looks.
Isn't it pretty? It would look even better if ALL five of my lights worked too!
Here is a full view. Yes......that is Max up on my pillows. I hated to move him because he just looked too comfortable.
Maybe I should just leave the lights off and then you won't notice that it isn't working. Ha!
I guess we're all on the homestretch to Thanksgiving and then we'll be pulling out our Christmas decorations. Are you ready?
I made a pumpkin topiary on my front porch, since I had to move some of the pumpkins off the steps for trick or treaters.
Hard to believe that these will have to be thrown out and replaced with evergreens and baubles soon!
