We had another productive weekend at the Myrtle House! I am convinced that renovating a house might be the best workout out there, because man, am I sore today! This is mostly due to the fact that we started installing the vinyl floors in the bathrooms (lots of squats, y'all!), and I will post about that process later on this week. For now, I am so excited to show you guys how the lighting turned out in the kitchen and dining room. The amount of lighting in this space is on point, and I think this area is going to be so lovely when it is all wrapped up... whenever that might be!
This first photo is of the kitchen. The oil-rubbed bronze and crystal chandelier will be above a small eating area, and the gold and crystal chandelier on the other side of the fireplace will be the dining room. Please excuse my husband's derriere! :)
And here are a few shots at night!
In the little nook beyond the beadboard arch will house some base cabinets and the kitchen sink. The flushmount will be right over the sink.
And here is the chandelier in the dining room. I took off most of the crystals so that they wouldn't be damaged during installation (you can see it all put together here), but I LOVE how this light looks in front of the brick. You can also see a peek at the vinyl flooring flattening out below. No vinyl for this room :) ; we are going to attempt to match the old existing hardwood in here that will continue into the kitchen.
We were actually able to sleep in the house for the first time ever since starting this project in January of last year. That felt like quite a milestone! It is really exciting to see it all slowly starting to come together.
