I have been a bit out the loop this week. I have barely had a chance to jump on my computer, but I did want to share a couple of projects Husband and I crossed off our list over the long weekend.
The first of which was to switch out the dining room chandelier. I actually rather liked the one that came with the house. It was art deco, which I am always a big fan of, but I scored a free whimsical fixture and wanted to try it out.
The piece seems to brings out the soft gray walls and allows for a bit better view of the window. The chandelier is made up of silver glass cylinders, which also seem to brighten up the room, while the light allows for a much softer glow. The previous fixture had six bulbs and was very bright at the dinner table. I tried using only a few of the lights, but the rays just seemed a bit harsh. I also do have to give a shout out to my husband for his manly electrician skills! I really do like this new whimsical look!
