~FORMAL DINING ROOM CHANDELIER~
This Spring I've decided to do some Chandelier change-out here inside my La Chaumière de Briarwood! I absolutely adore antique lighting and so when I find something I like better than what I already have I don't hesitate to have my hubbs move the ceiling fixtures around. Ahh...to have a man with many talents is simply divine! :) Saves me (and him) more buckeroos than I can say...
Now...don't faint! That fabulous antique Chandelier you see at the top is NOT going anywhere. It's my very favorite of all my hanging lights and I'm fairly sure it will stay right where it's hanging for...well, forever! I love it that much!
~VINTAGE CHANDELIER IN FAMILY ROOM~
The light fixture you see above is nowhere near as lovely as the first one, but when I hung it up it was the only one I had and we needed something in order to SEE!!! It's still pretty...just not fancy and if the truth be told it's just too small and petite for the space.
~VINTAGE SHABBY COTTAGE CHANDELIER~
And so~I've decided to change out the light in our family room with this one! It's not terribly old but it's style fits a bit better into the decor of the room. It's also larger in size even though it still only have five arms. I think this is going to be a sweet change.
This fixture was painted out in my favorite cottage white paint and I'm sure it will look heavenly hanging in it's new place!
~VINTAGE CHANDELIER IN BREAKFAST ROOM~
This old Chandelier is another one of my favorites, but again...even though it displays nicely with the previous one (they hang fairly close together), it still just leaves me wanting.
~FABULOUS GOODWILL FIND~
It's also a tiny bit too small for the room and so you can imagine I was in heaven when I found the one you see above! This truly romantic find is larger and has one extra arm, too! I found it at Goodwill and it came with loads and loads of prisms in two sizes!
~HAILS FROM THE 1950's or 1960's~
This one will also be painted out with that dreamy and creamy cottage white paint and the old, cracked candle covers will be replaced with new ones!
~GREAT OLD PRISMS~
~SO ROMANTIC, Too!~
Have you checked eBay lately for vintage lighting? Oh my gosh...what has happened? Everything has skyrocketed in price! Wow! Makes me even more excited when I snag a truly fabulous find for mere pennies! I'll spare you the details of my happy dance...just know I am over-the-moon happy with my wonderful, fabulous,
Today I'm working on repainting my new lamp and I promise to take pictures and share the final results later this week! Oh...and for those of you who are wondering about our new French Doors, etc... The windows for the breakfast room have been ordered (what I saved on the Chandy I spent on new windows...bah!) and they should be here any day. As soon as they arrive and are installed I promise more pictures of the makeover will be coming your way!
Spring is here! Fresh ideas. Deep Cleaning. Pretty Flowers. Neighborhood walks. Sunshine. Peace.
Can there be anything sweeter?
Love to you...
