Metamorphasis Monday

Although this is my first Met Monday, I have been a long time participant in Tablescape Thursday.
Be sure to visit Susan for more great Met Mondays!
My husband worked so very hard this weekend I really wanted to share the results of his labor with all of you.
There are three projects to share.
Also don't forget to sign up for the give away!
Drawing will be Sept. 1, 2009

See side bar for details or click here
OK so onto the projects!
First this sad little chandelier
Black paint and little shades brought this to life don't you think?
( we hung it over the breakfast nook table)
OK so now the front door from inside the foyer
(no sheers)
Sheers warm up the foyer and adds a great deal of privacy without blocking the light.
Next, the BIG project
Painting the halls and staircases
I don't have any "before" but can you see the different color?
The lighter alabaster color in the upper corner?
We needed to change
The entire downstairs was that color and it had to go.
So we now have this much darker taupe.

So that is it! Hope you enjoyed the first Met Monday here at the
blog plantation!
Drop back by any time Y'all!

Wow, three metamorphosis! Love the new look of your chandelier...doesn't even look like the same one! The sheers really do give a lot of privacy without blocking your light...great idea! And your new paint color is really pretty...I think it warmed up you hall/staircase areas, too. I love the fleur-de-lis going up the side! Great Met Monday post! :-)

Love the sheers in the door sidelights! They really accentuate the foyer so nicely!

Deanna said...

Your chandelier looks so classy black!
I love the taupe color. I think I'll paint my hallway taupe. It's so soothing. Have beige right now and am tired of it.
Enjoying Met Monday. Glad you've shared.
I posted for the first time this week.
Blessings from Kansas,
