~Dressing Up the Chandy~

 Seeing all the beautiful chandeliers out here in blogland made me want to dress the one in my dining room up a little. I always loved the Beeswax candle sleeves that Joan over @
for the love of a house uses, so I went and ordered them. But I still wanted a little more so along with the candle sleeves I ordered their 2" French Cut Crystals. I love the added bling it gave it!
 Before....

  AFTER....

 I ordered everything through Antique Lamp Supply.






 One more close up and this is it, I promise!!

 Sorry for the picture overload but I just love it's new look! Here's the link to

Judy said...

Love the chandelier. I am in the middle of changing up a chandelier and yours has given me lot of inspiration. I am following you on linky now.

Anita @ Cedar Hill Ranch said...

What a great idea, and love the make over. BTW, I am assuming those aren't real wax, since if they were, wouldn't they melt with the heat of the light bulbs? Either way, it's a great look, and love the crystals too.

Dropping in to say thank you for your kind comments on my blog posts yesterday.

Love the prisms... I saw the same post about the candle sleeves and now want to order some for my dining room fixture. Right now they're the standard plastic sleeve, but the wax ones would look so much better!
