So a new found love for me is the chandeliers, never really paid any attention to them, we have a basic black one from Lowe's in our Dining Room. But now I have discovered the big dramatic ones , with jewels and I love them.
So I found this huge gold kind of funky one for $29 & it worked great.
So of course painted it a shade of white, added a ton of lights to it, and some jewels.
Now when it came to hanging it, not so easy. I wanted it in my sewing/crafty room (the front living room-the one no one ever uses in a home) But the ceilings are vaulted and are at least 14 feet tall.
The only ladder my husband had was a 8 foot. He was insistent that it would work- Well, (nope)..So as he is use to my over excitement for something new to get set up or hung or built, he thought he would have it done before i got home.
Well when i walked in, I found a long vintage table from my shoppe and another vintage table (I'm getting ready to turn into an ottoman) set up, with long pieces of ply wood on them, then his 8 foot ladder on them- and he on the top trying to install this huge chandelier.
Would of been beautiful except he had asked if we had electrical wire- i say yes- well i guess there is a difference between speaker wire and electrical wire for wiring a chandelier (oops)..
Now it is up, and I LOVE IT!!!!
then i added another lighting make over- a little mini lamp, that i use to use for sewing-no longer need it-so i painted it, changed shade and back to adding red to the shoppe with this cutie..
b-day gifts, anniv. gifts for me- Just a case of heirloom white paint will do.
