The last two nights we have had thunder storms roll thru during the wee hours of the morning, and very rudely interrupted my sleep, which has gotten out of whack anyway. I had plans to get a few things accomplished today, but instead have been walking around like a zombie.
One thing I did accomplish yesterday, was to decide on the new flooring for my kitchen/dining area. To be honest, I got tired of looking. The tiles on there now have separated in places and the adhesive is surfacing where separated, then dirt sticks to it - well you get the picture.
I got the choice down to these two. I like the colors in the one on the left, but not the finish (very dull). I brought several samples home of the lighter tile look, and most would take on a yellow or pink tint, when next to the beige carpet that it will be next to.
It was hard to decide, as I did not want something that looked like it belonged strictly in a kitchen, since the space is so open. So - ended up going with the slate tile look. If all goes well, it will be installed next week.
What do you think? If you had this light fixture hanging over your dining table, would you replace it with a different style? Yeah - I know - it is dated! Anyone close to my age remembers these light fixtures, when they were popular many, many years ago - late 60's thru mid 70's. I bought it from someone years ago, at a great price. Well great until he broke one of the panels in it when delivering it to me. I bought it anyway and took it to a man that worked on stained glass and he was able to replace the broken panel. It hung in my blue and white kitchen, where use to live, and has hung over my dining table since moving here years ago. I will probably decide after the new floor goes in and I get the green and white wallpaper covered up. I already have someone wanting it, if it is replaced.

Just a Dab of This and That!
Hope everyone is having a great week!
