Well over a year ago, my husband wanted to clean out his dad’s basement – so i helped out (although he never quite finished and it’s a cluttered mess once again) and i found and set aside an old etched glass cover for a ceiling light fixture. I forgot about it until this past month i decided to paint two rooms – daughter Jessica’s room she sleeps in and the kitchen – from Tuscany historical colors to farmhouse white.
Both rooms turned out fabulously – the kitchen i had painted Lenox Tan from Benjamin Moore and although a good color, it was always darker than i liked in that room. (LRV 43.52) So, it is now painted Chantilly Lace (LRV 92.2), also from Benjamin Moore. You can tell by the Light Reflective Value difference is huge that the white really brightened the room. It is the same color used in Jessica’s room. Hers had been some sort of yellow in the same heritage color scheme but i never liked it though i chose it!
Knowing that Jessica never liked the chandelier style fixture i purchased for her room, i decided to change it out and thankfully, i remembered that old light fixture i found over a year earlier.
