It has been eight months since I moved, and it's finally time to start finishing some of the rooms in our home. Since we purchased new construction, there was a good amount of settling over the winter and the majority of the house needs to be re-caulked prior to us painting. So, we decided to do a mini face lift and add some new lighting in the master bedroom. We have very large bed posts, so there is no room for a ceiling fan, plus I've always wanted a chandelier in my room so now seemed like as good of a time as any! Here is what the room looked like before:
I found this chandelier on Amazon and it was super discounted with not so great reviews. Mostly because you have to attach most of the mini (fake) crystals, but I totally loved the design so I went ahead and bought it anyway. I am so glad I did! It took a good amount of work to get it ready for my dad to install, but in the end it was well worth the many hours I put into adding each crystal and bending the medal to keep them in place.
I've also always really loved the idea of having candelabras hanging on the wall on either sides of the bed. I found these shabby chic ones at a resale shop, and also picked up mini LED candles that flicker. I wanted the beautiful vintage look of burning candles without the possible house fire. ;) In the end I can proudly say, I am loving the new additions!
