New Lights

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas!  On Christmas Eve my hubby hung up the light fixture in the dining area.   Here is the before with no light fixture.

Here is the after.

The jury is still out on how it looks, but part of that is probably just getting used to having something hanging there.

If you remember this light fixture was silver and I spray painted it Oil Rubbed Bronze.  I found the cord cover at Lowe’s for $5.97.

He also surprised me Christmas morning when I saw he hung the mini chandy I bought from Overstock in my craft/sewing room.

I just need to get more bulbs for it and add the crystals then I’ll show you that one.  It will definitely give me more light in there along with looking much better than the basic ceiling fixture that was there. {I already sprayed those candle holder pieces white}.

I like it, Kathy. It does take some getting used to a new light, doesn't it? It's like it stops your eye everytime you pass by. You will LOVE it in no time flat. Can't wait to see your chandy~ xo Diana

Hi Kathy,
It looks really nice and certainly helps define the purpose for the area. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas in your new home.

It's really pretty, Kathy. I vote for adding more fabric to soften everything--but I'd vote for more fabric regardless... :0)
