Newest DIY project...

We replaced the very dated light fixture that was hanging in our dining area when we moved in, however I wouldn't let Cory throw it away because I thought I might be able to use it somewhere.  Last week, I decided to see what I could do with it and in the end I only spent about $3 on a can of spray paint!
I don't actually have a true before picture, but  I do have a picture of the smaller version of the same light fixture to give you an idea of what it looked like before (just 5 lights on it instead of 3).

And here's the new light that we put in C's room.  If you've been following our blog for a long time, you'll know that before Allie our first adoption didn't go through for a little boy.  We purchased the bedding before the adoption fell through and we didn't have the heart to return it.  It's a little boyish, but I knew that I could find a way to dress it up and make it a girly room.  I'm so excited for how it turned out and it's 10 times cuter in person!!!

Now I need to find a way to fix up the smaller version of this light.  Any ideas???

You are incredibly crafty! :) That light is really beautiful. I can't wait to start decorating V's room.

Well, tomorrow is our first homestudy visit! I'll let you know how it goes.

I'm praying for you to hear something really soon!
