A Beaded Chandelier

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!

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!

  1. The chandelier is very chic! It reminds me of Nicole’s beaded candelabras on her dining room wall, but hers are not electrified! Good focal over the dining table! Love u, mom 🙂
