Dining Room chandelier

Bye, bye brass

by Andrea Cooley

Wow! I was blown away by all the Pinterest projects yesterday! My to-do list just grew by at least 10 projects! Thanks for all your comments and ideas for how to use my veneer spheres. Sometimes I finish a project and am less-than thrilled with the results, so it was great to hear what everyone thought.

After posting about marriage for the month of October, we have some catching up to do on what we’ve been working on around our houses. Don’t think just because we weren’t blogging about projects we weren’t working on things!

I first posted about our brass chandelier in February. Take a good look at it there, because it’s gone!

Dining Room chandelierAfter months of searching high and low for the perfect chandelier that was modern but still fit with our traditional house, I landed on this beauty.

So what do you think? I heard somewhere that changing a light fixture is one of the most satisfying home projects, even more than painting because it’s so easy! I have to agree (especially since I didn’t have to do any of the wiring!).

  1. Love the change Andrea! It looks like it’s always been there – and that’s the hardest thing about choosing a light fixture – it can’t blend in too much, but you don’t want it to look like it doesn’t belong there either. Good job picking one!
