"Chandelier Redo"...


Found this beautiful inspiration from "Gypsy Purple's Blog".. Love the Chandelier and Hutch.. So beautiful.. Now.. Check out my Remade Chandelier!!




While my Hubby and 2 boys Ryan and Kenny went to the "Father and Sons" Outing on Friday Night to Sat am.. I was home alone (Which is quite rare!) I didn't feel like
going out so, I worked on some projects at home and art projects too.. In our home we have a brass chandelier over the dining table that I really hated.. So, since I
can't remove it.. I added some creative "Love" to it and made a drastic change..
I added beads, crystals, flowers, ribbons, butterflies, birds, wired flowers, all with fishing wire.. I was sure my hubby and 2 boys would just hate it.. Really girly and gaudy!! Yet, when I asked Kenny my 11 year old what he thought he looked at it and put a "thumbs up sign".. That means "Good Job Mom"!! I have only one girl in the house now.. Jenni and I are the only girls and pretty soon the Boys are going to take over.. I have always wanted a little pink in my home.. So, I am glad they don't object to my decorating ideas.. I still have to add some lamp shades and a few more crystals.. Hey.. maybe I can change it up for every season... HA!!

I did get my inspiration from "Tracy Porter".. She is a decorating genius and so talented.. I love her style.. www.TracyPorter.com

What a great redo. I love doing this at Christmas with Christmas colors, but have to say the the pink and blue is pretty!

I love it. Its funny, as more "girls" that leave the nest, you add a little more pink. By the time Jenni leaves the whole house is going to be fuschia! lol.

I love Tracy Porter too. She is so inspiring.

Great job. It is fun to have a night by yourself. It turned out gorgeous Caleen.
