Light at the end of the Tunnel

I am getting closer to finishing up my project.  All of the lighting is now installed.  I took a lot of time finding just the right light for each room.  This deco style globe was found years ago by my Mom at a yard sale and I have displayed it on a shelf for ages.  It fits perfectly in the new bathroom.


This is the dressing room light.  I wanted something kind of glamourous and was thinking of a chandelier but I like the idea of a shaded fixture.  It really isn't quite as shimmery as the picture suggests.

This was my great find on ebay.  It is an antique acorn style light and is rather large and ornate.  The hand painted globe is so beautiful when lit.  The picture doesn't do it justice.  There was no canopy for it so I took a new one and aged it to match the other parts of the fixture.  Love it!
Here is another yard sale globe that has stood on a pedestal cake stand for years.  I think I will miss it in my dining room but am glad to be able to use it as purposed.  As you can see, I am still playing with plaster and paint downstairs but there is light at the end of the tunnel!
