~ONE CHANDY HUNG~ONE TO GO~
Last week I shared with you how my Mr. AGPMan and I were mixing things up a bit around our La Chaumière de Briarwood! You may remember we decided to change out some lighting fixtures and so today I'm going to give you a little update on what's new!
I'm not sure how old the Chandy is you see at the top...probably hails from the 1960's given it's style and wiring! This one looks FABULOUS over our breakfast room table and fits in the space much better than the one we opted to remove! Sometimes little changes make a huge difference! This one does not have crystals and isn't as detailed, but given the fact it's hung so close to the one you see below it's better they are different as they don't compete for attention...
~MY FAVORITE COTTAGE WHITE PAINT~
Here is a picture of the other vintage Chandelier I just finished painting out with my favorite Cottage White Paint! Let me tell you this little sweetie was a real trip to revamp (per my Mr. AGPMAN!). I've never seen a bigger bunch of tangled wires and for the life of me don't understand how one can even figure out where they all go! Originally brass, I'm loving how she looks after her repaint job! Very "Shabby Cottage Chic" and romantic!
I can't wait to get all her crystals attached! She will be hung in place this evening and I'm excited to her glisten and shine in our living room! This Chandy was in wonderful condition and hails from the 1940's or so. She had cloth wiring that was VERY OLD and brittle and the entire thing had to be rewired. Like I said before...it was a real mess and I totally understand why electricians charge so much to bring vintage lighting up to date! Took my guy at least 2-3 hours to bring her up to code!
I tried to get a close-up shot of the gentle distressing done to the Lamp! Just a little bit for me... I love things chippy and worn, but NOT totally beaten up!
Now...for all of you who wrote to me or commented on that amazing Ceiling Surround shown again in the first picture just click HERE to read more about how we got this look! Surrounds are costly and for a less expensive alternative you can find the information about ours there! If you are new to my blog I think you might find how we re-purposed some wall art very interesting!
I'll be back tomorrow to show you this charming Chandy hung in place!!!!
Blessings to you for a lovely Spring day! I haven't forgotten about my next giveaway...I'm just running behind...as usual!
Love to you...
