Project #1 – Chandelier Switchout

Below is the before. This was a very nice light (we actually gave it to a family friend who put it in their log cabin and it tied into their home nicely), but it just wasn’t our style. I wanted something simple.

So this is what I came across in Lowe’s while shopping for a garbage can and couldn’t pass it by. It is the allen + roth Harpwell 6-Light Oil-Rubbed Bronze Chandelier. The price was decent, at $164, and it was super easy to install. (At least it looked like it. There was no grumbling and it went rather quickly)

And here it is installed. We chose to leave it up higher because our table isn’t perfectly centered under the built-in box in the ceiling. We didn’t really want that to stand out, so only using two of the chain links and the links on the ceiling mount and fixture seemed to work best.

Two years later, I’m not really digging the light anymore. I find myself drawn towards these styles more and more… Thoughts?
