Slowly but surely we have been replacing the obnoxious brass lighting fixtures that came with our 1980s house. First we rehabbed our orange-y/bronze dining room chandelier, then we added a new steals and deals chandelier for above our stair landing.
The next fixture on the list was the foyer light:
This corner of the room is so dark and drab-y, and the light was not helping the situation.
I was perusing Joss and Main a few weeks ago and found a lovely little teardrop chandelier that I thought would be perfect for brightening up the foyer. For $55, I figured it would be well worth the investment to add some sparkle and light to this little alcove.
So off we went. Building it was a bit tedious… and definitely needed two people (and a puppy) to help hold the crystals in place and what-not. We may or may not have broken a few of the tear drops, but thankfully extras came with it.
After an hour or so, we had a bright and shiny new chandelier.
Oh hey… while we are looking at this door…. Why are the door and the surround of the little window next to it different colors? I think something needs to be done about that. Ideas?
The only truly sad fixture that need to be tackled now is the brass fan in the living room. It’s seen better days. Has anyone heard of spray painting a fan? I wonder if that could be a solution… :)
I am hoping to sell the foyer chandlier on Craigslist to make up some of the cost. Love Craigslist.
Anywho, that’s all for now! Lot’s of fun things to share with you this week! Woo hoo!
