Crowned At Last!

~Yes, after many years, the old girl, 
my Victorian dining room,
has been crowned at last, 
and the pictures don't do it justice~

 I'm a little worried, she's so uppity, with her new Coronation, and all, that my junk might not fit in, so maybe my junk will need a little sprucing up, before being fit, for the Queen!
Nay, she'll just have to adjust, 
along with the rest of her subjects family,
tee hee!

View, from the next project
our living room

View from the kitchen, 
YES, I know the fan is a hot mess, 
...looking into a new one, 
yet to decide...
For one, I picked, quite modern, light fixtures,
for the kitchen, 
so still pondering...
contemplating, the double fan at Lowe's, 
with a rubbed bronze finish and a white fixture. I don't particularly care for the white fixture, but I have a similar white pendant light,
on the bar, which separates the areas.
Wondering, if it will give off enough light?

And don't any of you Northerners, lol, 
even suggest not having a fan! 

Number 1. 
William wouldn't go for it, 
while he compromises ,
letting me do many crazy, 
at least to him, things around here, 
there is where, his line is drawn!
Number 2. 
For y'alls information, 
it is still high 90's 'round here!
Therefore, while I can envision, all sorts of lovelies, hanging from that ceiling, 
including, yet not only, an old rusty bed spring, 
THE fan wins out! 

for just a little miracle, that makes me smile.

While finishing up our kitchen, 
more cabinet doors were added.
Finally,making it complete. 
Without ever any counting or planning, plus all the years in between installing the first cabinets, until now, it just so happens...
We have four knobs left, 
just enough for the job! 


LoVe to all you cold weather dwellers,

Ohhhhh I love your "crown" !And your celing is fabulous . Would love to be where it is still 90 ! Better to take your time to find a replacement for your fan & find one you LOVE !!

It's very beautiful, Lezlee...I love your house.

The details in your moldings fascinate me! Where did you get your ideas for all of these?
LOVE the knobs- when it works out like that- it was meant to be!
A lower hanging fan...but what style?...My blade style doesn't matter because the dumb thing is on all the time! It's all a blur of color! but I do have a light hanging on the bottom, so it serves more than one purpose.
Hugs- Tete

I love your crown molding. Those high ceilings are to die for!!! We live in the north but have ceiling fans in every room but the kitchen. I'm still working on getting one in there. lol We use our fans all summer long and wouldn't think of not having one.

The crowning touch for sure! On the issue of the ceiling fan...why not have both? Why can't you have a fan and drop a spring below it...if you're ceilings are tall enough I mean?
Love the wooden ceilings btw!

Holly said...

Oh, Lezlee! What a transformation, love the new crown molding. You must be so happy with it. Maybe just painting your fan a different color might work. Thanks for sharing your photos. sandi
