ORC Linking Event … Week FIVE!

Let there be LIGHT!  The Week 5 Theme!


If you are interested, you can click below to get a recap.


So … here we are back in the #ProjectDownsize Office Space.  And Yes, we have light.  However … do you see what I see??? Still no ceiling.

Well … I am all on board with the industrial look and all … but I need a ceiling. My contractor is coming next week. See, we had a leak in one of our skylights.  Don and he decided that was more important than my ceiling.  
I was not involved in the consultation!


The Next Addition of Light came on the PB Desk.
Mercury Knobs from Anthropologie.  
Just what the Girl Needed.


And yes, you are spying the feet of Ms. Confidence.  She is here and she is PERFECTION!  She is just not ready to reveal herself in all her Nude glory quite yet!!

If you follow me on IG, you know that my chair is at the upholsterers right now. I checked on her today and the Platinum hide is on.  I just delivered the fabric for the back which is the real pièce de résistance! 

I am so close … but yet so far from completion for Week Six.  I hope you will continue to check in till around Week 10!

The plan is to get the ceiling up and then I am covering the walls in fabric, similar to my illusion office.  You see I have 24 yards of beautiful white silky fabric that I was going to use for new curtains in our master bedroom before we moved.  Well … it is now going to grace my office walls.  But I cannot do this until the ceiling is up.

There is also a great surprise for a countertop that I am making to provide more storage … But I am waiting. Patiently. For the material to arrive!

Go check out all the other Linkers and see what they've been up to.  

The Creativity is Seriously Good my friends!


Thanks again Linda … for helping us all in our quest!

Our Home ... The Upper Deck!

Earlier this week I shared with you Callie's celebration .. and promised I would bring you to the Upper Deck for the rest of the Party!

Here we go ... now here are the House Rules:

1.  I am a re-user!  So you have probably seen some of these things before.
2.  I have been desperately wanting new lighting for the Deck.
3.  Callie chose the menu.  
Bar-b-que, mac-n-cheese, mashed potatoes and Southern Style Green Beans.
4.  Once the party begins, I forgot that I am a blogger and put my camera down!





Remember the One Light Four Ways post that Linda did?  Well, this was my introduction to Rejuvenation.  Have you seen their catalog?  They specialize in Classic American Lighting and HouseParts.
Traditional. Current. Industrial. Substantial. Spot On. 
Yes.  Exactly what I need.

Can you spy one of my new lights?


Here's how it was looking before the party ...

A little PUNY ... wouldn't you say???


So I found these. Here.



The Carson Gooseneck.  QuickShip. Oh Yes.



Let me Bring you in a little closer to appreciate the REJUVENATION of my Deck Lighting!!


It's really the little things that can transform a space.  Indoors or Out.  







I ordered two lights to go over the wicker sofa here as well.  But, I have to say, they were just to large in this space.  I am going to send them back and see how I might be able to Custom Design two to go here.  I will keep you posted on my findings.  I have a feeling we are all going to be pleased!!











Late night S'mores for all.
