But I'm working like 70 hours a week, I'm currently commuting from the farmhouse into the city twice a week, of course I'm churning up a million-and-one projects to complete in the country, and then I'm also trying to remain remotely present in my son's life. And then--- to top it all off--- it was my birthday this weekend, so I had to relax with friends, drink rosé, and eat my body-weight in paella. (Recipe to follow!!)
I had to....
BUT! In between all of that racing around (and lounging around), I've actually been photographing all of the projects we've been doing around here-- I just haven't gotten around to blogging about them yet. So-- prepare yourself for a bunch of little project posts over the next couple of days... We've been busy!
One of our first projects (which was a surprising challenge because the light needed to be re-wired more than we expected!) was hanging this awesome vintage tole chandelier up in the guest bathroom upstairs... I'm so obsessed with it-- I think it's so ridiculously cute, and perfect for a bathroom that is also a bubble-bath-time hot spot!
Children and adults agree! This light fixture is a major score!
It's all thanks to my lovely mudder-- who sent it out to me a few weeks ago. What a lady!!
I also pulled inspiration from the bathroom's oval rag-rug and the new light fixture and decided to paint the bottom of our claw-foot tub a pretty pale green, Benjamin Moore's "Budding Green". I swear it's green, but it's hard to see in that photo, so you can scope it out below on the Bm paint swatch...
