Lighting Things up a Bit

Our 30 year old dining light fixture was showing it's age so this week, with a little lots of help, my husband installed a new chandelier. It only took 2 years for us to decide on one we liked! It came wth silver lined black shades as well as the white silk.

After:


We hung the new one much lower, according to instructions on the internet. Now it just takes some getting used to!

I am loving your new chandelier Millie! We, make that I, need to replace our 20 year old white ceiling fan light over the dining table too and I am looking for just that style of fixture. Could you share with me where you purchased it? I do need to know if it is bright as I read the newspaper at the dining table and do other things there that require light. We do have a dimmer switch on it now for low/romantic lighting. Thanks so much. I think it looks great and the idea of hanging it lower is what they say to do and would take some getting used to. Enjoy the day! Pamela
