Did you have a nice weekend? Mine was very busy but also very fun. I got a lot done around my house. One thing that got done was installing this new chandelier in my master bedroom. I found it while out shopping at an antique store that is very close to my house. They have a plethora of stuff that you may or may not find something good. This time I found something VERY good! This chandelier was originally from Ballard Designs and sold for over $200! How do I know this? Well, the dealer left the original sticker on it. How much did I pay for it? Just $45! Oh yeah! Needless to say, it had to come home with me.
I decided to hang it in my bedroom because the other one that was in here was too small for the space after we got our king size bed. (It was purchased when we had a queen size bed). Also, since my other one was old, some of the lights didn't work properly. Here is what I used to have.
(I snapped this pic after my husband already started taking it down so the ceiling plate is hanging down.)
So, now I have this much larger grey painted chandelier that fits the space perfectly and all of the lights work!
We put it on a dimmer because it has 12 light bulbs! When that thing was turned on it looked like we were walking into a lit up ball field at night!
You may have noticed that I made a few other changes to my room. They were actually made prior to getting this chandelier. So, the chandelier was just icing on the top!
I brought my swedish style chair in here (from the family room).
I also changed the pillows on my bed.
And I made a pillow change on the chair in the corner of the bedroom.
Now, I LOVE my bedroom! I think this chandelier change made all the difference.
My husband and I worked on something else in our house that we should've done after we first moved in almost 20 years ago! I am super excited about it because we now have something that we've needed for so long. I'll share that with you later this week.
Go forth and have a wonderful Monday!
Thanks for stopping by.
