I have a chandelier in my kitchen.
I also have a personal shopper.
Yes, I am a housewife.
Yet sadly, not on the cast of any of the “Real Housewives of…” shows.
I’d have to change out of my yoga pants for that I would imagine.
Because for as much of a baller as the first two sentences make me sound, they really just mean I have hairbrained ideas and really nice friends.
Back up almost a year.
I saw these numbered canisters at Target.
LOVE at first sight.
Until I saw that it would cost me over $55 for the set.
Not only did I not need canisters to begin with, but I certainly couldn’t justify dropping that much money on them.
But I eyed them lovingly every time I was shopping.
And I may or may not have pet them each visit.
After a few months, like all things at Target, they went on clearance.
For 75% off.
that they only had the #2 and #3 left!
So I texted Julie: “AHHHH!!!! What do I do????!!!! Life and death. Sure of it.”
“Buy them. We’ll find you the #1.”
Like an order from a drill sergeant, I really had no choice but to bring home the two randoms with no real assurance that I wouldn’t be stuck with canisters that had people constantly asking me “what’s with the 23?”.
Within three days, Julie had gone to three different Targets (there are 6 near her!!!) and found my precious #1!!!!
Life. is. good.
It doesn’t take much.
Did any of you catch that I wanted a mini chandelier for over my kitchen sink at the end of this post?
Well, Julie did.
Because she’s rad like that.
And two weeks later she told me she found one at Ikea.
So cute. (and cheap!)
Well, after a little spraypaint that is. Because everything is made better with spraypaint.
The color is Dark Walnut…so it’s actually a really dark brown…which matches the oil rubbed bronze I have for all of the hardware.
I love that I have a chandelier in my kitchen.
It’s fairly random, but Meg does it too so I can’t be the only crazy one.
I feel all glamorous and fancy dumping congealed milk out of sippy cups found under furniture.
Like I said: It doesn’t take much.
I’m good with it.
Don’t forget that tomorrow is InstaFriday!
And Monday…I have something big coming!
Do you think my chandy in the kitchen is random or fun? I think Andy’s still a little unsure…
