Lots of light hanging going on at the house this week! Some fixtures look better than I expected. Yea! Some fixtures are too long because I apparently can't measure. Boo. If only hobbits were allowed in my house I would be able to keep my too long fixtures, but sadly one of my carpenters who is over 6 feet tall says they have to go. Even though they look amazing. For a hobbit house. :) While I am back to the drawing board with my upstairs hallway lighting, I think I nailed it with the entry light!
I decided to go with this Orb Chandelier from Restoration Hardware. I have loved this exact one for so long! But I put off buying it because it was so pricey. I kept looking for other options and found several fixtures I liked, but nothing was big enough for the space. Then not long ago this baby went on sale. The exact size and finish I had been admiring! I scooped one up so fast and just days later they were sold out. Seems I'm not the only one who adores the orb!
So today the scaffolding went up...
And so did my light! Although it needs to be lowered about 4 feet.
Have you all seen Shelly's DIY version of the Orb Chandelier (House of Smiths)? Oh my word. She made one! And it looks amazing. So impressive. You have to check it out. If only I had an ounce of her mad DIY skills. I want to laugh out loud just picturing me trying to attempt something like that! Let's just say that if I tried to make one myself, the orb wouldn't look so orbish. :)
Enjoy your day.
