It's not that it's a really bad "chandy", but it isn't what we want in this space. With some updating (& matching globes), this will find a new home -- to be shared later.
We looked all over for lighting that we liked & finally found it. We didn't want a bunch of crystals & frills. It has an oil-rubbed finish and looks so great with our dark pine furniture.
I am so lucky to be married to just the sweetest and very talented man. He can do just about any wiring, plumbing, drywall, painting, etc. that I happen to add to the "Honey Do List!"
I just love it!
I truly don't know what the builder was thinking when he positioned the box for the dining room fixture, but he messed up big-time. Thank goodness for decorative chain and the ability to "swag!"
I think it looks so cozy & is so perfect with our decor.
Well, I can't tell you how happy and excited I was to get this project finished. My enthusiasm must have been just what The Man needed, because he immediately started in doing another lighting project -- the entry. There was only the canned light in our foyer, so we found a fixture that works really well with the dining room fixture.
This is what it looked like before.
Love this fixture and how the light plays off the walls & ceiling.
Isn't this cool?
With the light off. This space is so cozy and inviting now.
With the completion of these two fixture redos, I am just about ready to share a tour of the rest of the entry hallway, the sitting room & dining room. That should be happening next week. Bet you can't wait, right? Anyhoo, thanks for stopping by and please come again soon.
