It is no secret that I have a huge soft spot in my heart, and a massive hole burnt into my wallet, thanks to my love for lighting…particularly chandeliers. We bought our home in the country, about an hour outside of DC, almost exactly one year ago. When we toured the home with our realtor before we bought, I remember walking into the foyer and knowing exactly what fixture I wanted to put in the space.
These pictures of glass chandeliers from Houzz were inspiration:
Sure enough, the first thing we bought for the house was this bubble glass chandelier.
Here was the foyer BEFORE:
And here we are in the midst of the update. We rented scaffolding, painted the walls and moulding.
(we’ve linked to all exact items if available, and similar items for things like thrift-scores and DIY projects)
But, it’s a very pretty light…until once again, I have to clean it…then this thing is going back on my $%^&-list.
