Chandelier Glam!

I've been keeping an eye out for a chandelier for our master bedroom for quite some time now. I've actually had my eye on this certain one at Home Depot ...but at a nearly $200 price tag I have been able to talk myself out of impulsively buying it...just knowing I would find something better...cheaper....and I did!!! So here is a picture of our OLD light fixture which I installed shortly after we moved in. There was nothing wrong with the one we had, but I have been longing for some glamour in this bedroom of ours!

The light fixture alone is beautiful but I thought a 24" ceiling medallion would add that something extra to our new chandelier!


To do this I had to use a longer center screw in order to attach the light to the ceiling with the medallion in between...


I used Alex Plus DAP to caulk in between the medallion and the ceiling for a seamless finish...wiping the bead with my finger and a damp cloth...


And here it is...our new $99 chandelier found at Rona! It's no steal...but it's $100 cheaper than the one at Home Depot! Cha-ching!






It kinda takes my breath away a little when I wake up and see this beauty staring down at me...

Oh I love that! So pretty and I think $99 is a good price for a chandelier. I may have to swing by Rona...
