Most normal people wouldn’t dedicate a whole post to a chandelier… but by now you should know that I’m not anywhere near normal. So, today you get some info on our newly added chandelier. It’s a beaded chandelier for our dining room. I actually purchased it (on sale of course) before our other house burned. I wanted a “statement light fixture” over the dining room table, but not something too fancy. Enter- wooden beads. I think the wooden beads add a natural/simple touch to the chandelier to keep it from being too fussy.
And here’s a little play-by-play…
I essentially had to take each strand of beads and attach them to the top ring and middle ring.
Once I had attached those, I had to attach smaller strands of beads from the middle ring to the bottom ring.
Isn’t it pretty? I’m basically in love. And just for fun… a few close-ups.
My handy (and very sexy) electrician (aka- my husband) wired her up for me. He’s pretty handy. I think I’ll keep him ♥
And here she is with all of her bulbs, ready to go!
All lit up!
Well, what do you think? I can’t wait for us to build a dining room table and collect some chairs for this space. I can envision what I want it to look like… now I just need to put my plans in action… oh and install floors and about 1,892,035 other things.
The light casts a very nice amount of light, but guess what? We’ve already purchased a dimmer switch to put the fixture on so that we can dim down the lights when we want. Nothing like a romantic dinner! I can’t wait! Do you have any of your lights on a dimmer? If you don’t, you should. We love them!
P.S. Thanks for hanging with me when I don’t get to post content very often. I ABSOLUTELY love your comments, suggestions, kind words, etc. Like I’ve said before, as soon as we have full-time access to internet and are moved back in, you better believe I’m going to be blowing up the internet with posts!
