old chandelier – new look

December 17, 2010

When we purchased our house in 2008, we both agreed that the dated chandelier in the dining room had to go. 

Along with most of the super-generic builder’s grade lighting fixtures throughout the house.  We splurged and purchased a gorgeous Italian chandelier for the dining room, but I wasn’t in a hurry to dispose of the old one immediately.  The plan was to convert the office, directly across from the dining room, back into a parlor, the originally intended purpose for that room.  So I knew it would need a chandelier.

Primer, latex paint and glazing liquid to the rescue. 

Fresh and simple.

This looks more like a parlor, doesn’t it?

And it’s even better with people sitting inside visiting.

Lovely too, with Christmas prettiness.

Thank you for reading!

    Just wishing I was there eating that cake!

    Well done!
