The New Chandelier

 Hi Friends!
  A few weeks ago the hubs asked me what I would like for my birthday...my response was a quick one... a new chandelier for the dining room! He just rolled his eyes...hey he asked;) So I began the hunt and when I found this beauty it was love at first site! 
  The website I found it on was Lighting Universe.
 I had this medallion up with the previous chandelier too but it was plain old white...so I gave it a makeover to look old and worn. It goes so well with the new fixture now. 
Many of you guessed a ceiling medallion when I gave you a little peek last week.
 Here's the before fixture... after I dressed it up with crystals and beeswax candle sleeves. It's nice but I LOVE the after so much better!
Some of the pretty details.
 
 The hubby is even loving the new look! I catch him walking by for a peek all the time:)
 I loved it so much the matching sconce was added to my order too:) That's hanging in our living room... you'll have to wait to see that one;)
 I was considering painting my dining room chairs & hutch, but adding this lighter chandelier really brightens up the space so I think I'll leave them for now;)
I really need to teach Neena to put her toys back in her basket LOL!
Now I just need to get the finishing touches done on my living room so I can show you guys the changes that were made! Have a great week!!

It is gorgeous Martina...it is perfect for the room...and I am glad that I am not the only one who asks for "home decor" for special occasions rather than Jewelry...this chandy is definitely a gorgeous jewel in the room!!! Happy Birthday!

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

I love it Martina. I believe you got the same one I did except I got the nine light one. I put off painting my chairs and was thrilled after I got them done.

So pretty Martina and it does lighten up the room!

Becca said...

The gorgeous chandie was meant for your beautiful dining room, Martina! I've eyed one like this for a long time (after falling in love with the one in Kim's dining room). I know you just LOVE it!

Michele said...

Just love it too!
It would be a shame to paint such a gorgeous table and chairs. Maybe new seat covers while you think about it.
Love your dining room and I bet your hubby is so proud of you!

mah said...

WOW is it as beautiful in person as it is online? What a beautiful light. I have gone to the website and it is beautiful there also. I say go for it and paint your table and chairs. They aren't expensive antiques and I think you would love them and the chandy even more!!!!

Terry Moore said...

Martina, first of all a big Happy Birthday to you! Second, I have that very same chandy in my living room. I posted about it earlier this year when I bought it on Amazon. I love it too. Great minds think alike!
