Holiday Chandelier - My first Metamorphosis Monday
I love Metamorphosis Monday and have been a fan but have never participated..so this will be my first Metamorphosis post. Thanks to Susan at Between Naps on the Porch for always being such a wonderful hostess.
We inherited my mother-in-law's Thomasville dining room suite this past summer. I have been working on transforming the room from a formal living room to a formal dining room. We've changed from a striped wallpaper to a neutral creme color on the walls. I probably will go darker, but I wanted a clean slate to start with as picking a color can be overwhelming to me, especially darker colors. Now that I've lived with the furniture for several months I am beginning to develop a color scheme of what I would like the finished room to look like...the work is still in progress...but I thought I would share my new chandelier we installed just in time for the holidays. What started out as a "simple project" ended up taking us most of a weekend, and we took back two chandeliers because they just didn't look right.
Here is the room...a work in progress, we still need to hang the mirror.
Here is the ugly before....
and here is my new chandelier.
I still need to decorate it for Christmas....but will have to do that sometime this week. Next I am looking for window coverings to go over the wood blinds and fabric to cover the chair seats that will coordinate. I am thinking along the lines of burgundy fabrics. I would love to add crown moldings to the ceilings too but will have to wait until after the holidays. I'll have to post the finished room someday!
Hope everyone has a great Monday and Holiday Season!
