Route 66 room–a new look for the light fixture

Even the smallest change can make a difference.  Removing the Victorian theme from our B&B has caused me to look at the tiniest things, like the globes on the light fixtures.  I bought some new, more streamlined globes for the ceiling fan light fixtures.  The two on the left are the original ones with the frilly, old-fashioned look.  The two on the right are the new ones.  What a difference!

By the way, see that dark green trim on the molding around the door?  It’s now white.  And the room is a striking blue called “Rain Washed” by Behr (I love Behr paint!).  With new furniture, model vintage cars, and historic photos of Route 66, the room is now fun and vibrant.  Guests have changed from saying, “what a nice room” to “Oh, I LOVE this!  It’s so much fun!”

I’m having fun–come on along!
