Old School Chandelier

I don’t have a whole room to show you at this point, but I want to introduce you to our new addition.

Although we’ve been in the house for about 6 weeks our chandelier has remained “nekked”.

We had the electrician hang the skeleton, but he told us emphatically “I don’t do crystals”. OK, no problem. Jim said he was pretty sure he could install all the bling. So, he finally had time this weekend and I was reminded once again why I keep this guy around.

The white gloves came with the instructions. They look super cute Jimmy!!

The whole process took about 3 hours. I helped out by having some vino and tossing encouraging words his way.

Looking good Babe!

The finished product turned out so great.

Ta Daaaaa!

I have ordered some tiny burgundy shades for the bulbs. I’ll take another photo when they arrive.

I have to tell you about a very fun surprise that happened the next day. It was afternoon. Jim was in the kitchen and I was on the couch talking to a friend who had dropped in for the night. (We really enjoyed the visit Mr. Steve!) He was staring at something behind my head and I turned around to see this…

A free light show created by the sun shining directly on the fixture from the French Doors! I lasted about 10 minutes and it was BEAUTIFUL!

All these dots of light are tiny rainbows. We were both stunned and thrilled by this little performance. Steve asked if we had planned it and of course we had not. I think this house is magic. Stop by around 5:00 on a sunny day to see for yourself.

I really love our new house.

  1. Most beautiful chandelier ever. The ‘light show’ off the crystals is awesome. Wish I could see it in person. In the whole house, this is my favorite item. ❤️❤️❤️
