My chandelier came last week and I was so excited to see it. I absolutely love it and think I made the right choice. Now I just wanted to get it hung for Easter Sunday. My electrical guy said he would try, and he was such a trooper. He was going out of town Saturday afternoon so he came at 7 AM on Saturday morning to hang it. Now that is way above and beyond what I expected.
So here it is in all it's glory.
Love it, I think it has enough presence for the room but is still open and airy so it doesn't dominate the space.
I even like the way it looks as you come down the stairs. If you have a fixture that can be seen from upstairs, then you have to make sure it looks good from the top too.
At any rate, I love it and think I made the right choice. This was such a great find and price. It came from Build.com and it sells for $153.85. You can find it here. I think this proves you can find some great buys out there and you don't have to sell a kidney to have a fabulous light.
Everyone warned me not to hang it too low. They say 30" is the standard height above a dining table, this is 31" and I think it is just right. Kind of tricky with so many different elements of the room - the stair case - the loft and even the opening to the kitchen/familyroom. I think this has enough character to hold it's own and be a part of the room without getting lost or dominating the space.
This was the beginning of my Easter Table. I added some pillows to the host chairs and then added two more leaves and set the table for 8. I am so thrilled to be living closer to family so we can have great get-togethers.
If you have been following my blog, then you might remember that the previous owners had a hugger ceiling fan hanging here, not sure why, but it was really bad. How nice to walk in and see a pretty chandelier. Be sure to follow my blog to see more of this room and my kitchen and house remodel too.
