Out With The Old!

For quite some time we have been looking to replace this sweet ceiling fan light fixture in the dining room. I know you find it hard to imagine that we would want to give up this lovely rattan bladed, frilly sconced beauty but we did. I kind of hate the idea of having a fan running over the dining table so we never used that feature anyway. Our only problem was that we just couldn't decide what kind of fixture would look best in our dining room. Should the lights point up or down? Or have some of both? How big is too big? Should it hang from a chain or be flush mounted? What to do? What to do!
Wait long enough to make a decision that this little light fixture goes on sale at Menards. We are super happy with how it looks & the light it gives. Sometimes it's good to not be in a hurry.

And it's super good to live in town. Last Saturday we hauled that old ceiling fan out back by the alley just to see what would happen. Sure enough, within a couple of hours a tinker had come by & picked it up. No haul away for us!

It's also super nice to have another little improvement marked off of our list.

Love it! It looks very nice. I always say, "good things come to those who wait." For future haul away needs, check out your local freecycle group on yahoo. I have had MANY successful transactions with ours. People are always looking for a freebie.
