~ chandelier reveal



Tada! 
(Sung in an opera voice)


Remember that large empty space void of loveliness?



Well it's finally filled with beauty!




If only the energy I expended on this chandelier was considered a workout... What material should it be? What color? How wide? How tall? Shades or no shades? It's ridiculous really, the amount of time and effort I put into this decision. It's a little something I like to call obsessive behavior... It was a big purchase however, and one that deserved a bit of planning. 
Anyway, it went up without a hitch and I think it makes the room. It fills the void as expected, isn't too heavy, but definitely makes a statement. I couldn't be happier! 


Another big thank you to Antiquaire for helping me with the wiring, hardware choices, and the shipping... all handled with care and precision. If anyone is looking for a similar chandelier... very similar, but a bit smaller (6-light) they have one right now! It won't stay around for long! Take a look... 
Call Antiquaire if you're interested!

So funny "if the energy spent on this chandelier was considered a workout" boy, can I relate!! Well for what it lacked in burning calories it more than made up for in spades, in adding beauty to your room! A perfect choice, it is simply stunning! I just love it- the whole room is breathtaking, and this was the crowning touch! (Thanks for your comment and adding me to your blog roll, just added you too) Love your blog!
