If you're "bright" enough...

...then you figured out we got a new light fixture!  The other day we were at Lowe's just to look around and I showed Jake some pretty chandeliers that I liked.  While beginning to walk away from them to the next department I looked back and was surprised to see he was putting the box in the cart!  So here are before and after pics for you.

How it looks today!...






Well, what do you think?  I'm super happy with it.  I love my chandelier, but honestly I think the addition of the personal pictures made me the most happy.  It instantly made the house feel like a home.  Also, adding the black frames gave the room the contrast it needed where it had just felt kind of bla before with the light blue walls blending in with the white curtains.
Minus a little tweaking, I'm happy with this room for now.  Long term plans include swagging the chandelier so I can move the table closer to the window wall, a rug, a longer buffet, replacing the end chairs with nice parson chairs or the like, possibly a table runner and maybe new curtains.
