Project Monday

I am checking things off my 'to do' list around here at 'Casa de Moore'.
This big box came in the mail!  
Yoo hoo, Mr. MD (Mr.handyman) where are you?

I had been eyeing this lantern for quite some time and had looked around at others and on a whim pressed the 'put in your cart' button!
It was time to replace the chandy that was here when we purchased our home.
Looks good don't you think?  
I will say it was a booger to get up ...I was the handyman's assistant and at one time was holding it above my head. Oy.

In my ongoing attempt to not have my living room look like "Grannies are Us" with the furniture I inherited from my grandma, I've wanted to paint this table for quite sometime.
Since I had it on hand, I used Annie Sloan's white chalk paint to prime over the varnish. Being the careful attention to detail blogger that I am, I failed to take a picture when I was putting the color on.
In this picture it looks black, but it's actually a deep purple.
I did it purple to compliment the little lumbars I had made for the Victorian chairs.
Still working on the styling, 
it's not 'just right' yet.
How do you like my pouf? 
(Would sooo love to replace the carpet with wood).

Gotta check the list for what's next! :)
