Remember the French lantern I created back in March from old chandelier parts?
It finally got hung.
I’m not going to lie. Mr. Décor was not too excited about this project for two reasons:
He felt that the lantern would not be bright enough.
The lantern is so bright it’s a challenge to get a good picture of it.
He also did not like the idea that if we moved, the lantern would come with us. Meaning he will eventually have to take it down again.
I told him that the key word in the above sentence was “IF” and until the time came that we did move shouldn’t we surround ourselves with things we loved even IF it required 20 minutes of his time. 20 minutes.
(If you suffer from a similar decorating standoff I recommend you then take 20 minutes to bake his favorite cookies even though they will eventually be eaten. :)
The Duchess of Décor got her lantern hung.
I took these images in the early morning bright Arizona sun.
So you’ll just have to trust me that there is plenty of light at night.
Most of you wanted me to add some darker paint accents to the inside so I did. I also am going to do one more layer of glaze.
