Gigi is always a great assistantI've been slowly spray painting all of our doorknobs in the house. It's not in the budget right now to change everything out, so this is another temporary fix. It's a pretty dramatic difference, don't you think? While I'm always in the market for a light fixture that is vintage or antique, I have a really hard time finding reclaimed lighting for this place that isn't too industrial, too fancy or just plain boring. I found this one in a retail catalog and I think it's perfect! It kind of looks like we made it ourselves. My plan is to eventually remove the closet doors and create a seating and storage area inside the closet. This closet backs up to the garage that is attached to the house, so it is always below zero in there during the winter. We will have to add insulation and drywall over it. Here are a few of my inspiration pictures.

The mudroom is another one of my "in the meantime" projects. Once we finished remodeling the kitchen, it was hard for me to just let the mudroom be. It's the room that you have to walk through to get to the kitchen. I decided to paint it, change out the light fixture and add wallcovering to the ceiling. Here are some before pics.

This is the final, temporary product. It's something I can live with for a while.
