I've had house guests do pretty much everything on that list. And instead of bringing a gift they stole a set of my good Turkish guest towels on the way out. Makes me want to turn my guest room into a craft room.

I'm going to finally re-finish my dining room chandelier! I had pulled off all of the crystals, pulled out the wiring, and polished the brass... and then I put it in a box. So I pulled it out, ordered in the wiring supplies, dusted off my wiring book, and will get get this up within a month.

MY GOAL: I WILL HAVE A CHANDELIER IN MY DINING ROOM!

Thanks for all of the feedback. I do have to laugh that it seemed more people were concerned with my unfinished settee than the tables. While I could be snarky and say it is simply an art piece (just like I say about the bare light bulbs we have hanging from the ceiling while I rewire chandeliers), I put it in the picture for spacial reference of the layout of the room. And don't worry, upholstering the settee on my winter project list.

As for the coffee tables, I think we're going to make that an in house decision. But we really appreciate everybody's feedback.

The settee frame was put there simply for layout reference. Yes, it will be upholstered over the winter.

Yes, the settee will be finished. I simply put the frame there for reference. It's one of my 3 winter upholstery projects.

Haha... that was an original plan, but there isn't enough structural support for a bench. And my ARC welding is a bit rusty (I normally only do copper/plumbing welding now-a-days.) Plus I already have the sofa and 3 chairs to upholster... I already have my winter project lined up.

I put the unfinished sofa in the photo simply for proportions. I am going to Asia this week and plan on doing some fabric shopping so I can reupholster it over the winter. I have 3 other pieces I am in the middle of upholstering from frame up... it is time consuming.
