Shining Moments

The kitchen chandelier is ready to be viewed. Well, one of them, anyway. I have a smaller, two light version that will eventually hang over the sink, but that junction box needs be tied into the in-cabinet and under-cabinet lighting, so it will have to wait. But the big boy is up and on!




I actually can't really recommend this light fixture, as pretty as it is. The quality is pretty atrocious, even though the average viewer wouldn't know it from a normal distance. I thought we paid a decent amount to guarantee a modicum of workmanship and quality control, but apparently not. I'm only glad I got it on sale using some store credit, so I didn't pay full price! But it is attractive and it does provide adequate lighting (after rewiring one arm). And I like that it ties in with the rectangular shape of the dining room light fixture and also mimics the long, narrow form of the kitchen island that will be centered below it. All in all, perhaps a form over function choice, but I wanted a little sparkle in my "office", as it were.

  1. The bowls look great! So glad you got them in good condition. :)
    The chandelier looks beautiful too. I've been dreaming of adding a drum shade over ours for quite some time.
