It’s time for another Tuesday Tidbits! We have been busy this week continuing to hang light fixtures. It feels like we are only half way through this particular project. But admittedly, the fixtures are enjoyable because of the instant change we can see.
At the last minute, I realized there were a couple of corners that were missing small lights. I wanted something pretty, but not crazy expensive and it had to fit the space (very small)…oh, and I needed it in the next 30 minutes. So off to Lowes I went and found the best little light. I ended up buying a few of them for some closets and the hallway in our master bedroom.
It’s available at Lowes for $34.97. That’s an amazing price! Especially for such an adorable little light.
If you follow along on Facebook or Instagram, you know that we have spent the past week trying to figure out how to strip the paint from our doors, trim and windows. Thankfully, after many failed attempts we did find something that works…and we’ll be sharing a tutorial later this week. However, before we could start that process we had to remove all the hardware from the 160 year old doors. As you can tell, the hardware is original and has dates stamped on to prove it.
I’ve read several Pinterest posts on removing paint from the door hinges. If you have personally done this, please put something in the comments! I would love to NOT try 30 different methods before finding one that works.
We’ll end this Tuesday Tidbits on a light note: we planted this small quince shrub at the start of summer. The shrub has been growing and thriving (thank goodness) but I’ve noticed a few of the lower leaves seem to be missing or half missing. I think I found my problem. It’s a good thing he is cute!
Thank you for following along and have a wonderful week!
