I have had this really amazing chandelier sitting in my laundry room for the past two months. My husband hasn’t felt like tackling it (which is very unlike him) and I haven’t felt like being the nagging wife so together, we just let it be…until this week. My sister in law and her kiddos were coming to visit and visitors always get us moving in fast motion so we finally got it hung. Yay!
When I went to visit my Aunt in Dallas she gave me a shabby, vintage chandelier. It could have been wired to work, but I didn’t need it working. I planned on putting candles in the top, but that didn’t give it the pop I was looking for. Then the inspiration hit me. I love when that happens!
Do you remember this post? Well here is a photo of my inspiration.
Here is MY take on it.
What do you think?
I absolutely LOVE it!
It makes me so happy.
Once I realized the look I was going for, I rummaged through my closet. I knew I had old vintage plates on hand. All I was missing were the tea cups. I headed to the Goodwill and found three that would work.
This one was black. I painted it the same shabby green I used on my armoire. I really liked the shape of this one.
This one gives me that clean, crisp Pottery Barn feel that I love.
But this one is my favorite. I love the look and feel of it.
This is the one that ties the pretty bow on the whole thing for me.
It finishes my kitchen. I didn’t realize how badly this room needed a chandelier until I got one. What a difference it makes!
Of course when you add something like this, it calls for some other changes to happen. I switched some things around on my table. I just finished up a bargain I found at the Goodwill when I was there. I’ll post the rest next week.
Right now we are having fun with our company. :)
