Let There Be Light!

Dining light that is...and not stupid skinny out of date style torchiere light. It would be one thing if the torchiere looked like this:

Or this:

Or even this:

But no, ours looked like:

Just look at it! Looking skinny and unpleasant from all angles:

If our dining room had any chance whatsoever of reaching it's full potential then it needed a serious upgrade. So I began to look around for the perfect fixture to fill our hole...ceiling hole that is:

So what did I do? I got on line to look at chandeliers! I spotted a fixture at Lowes that I thought would work perfectly and so I ventured on over there and took this picture to send to Chris:

 And after work we bought it!

And here's what it looked like soon thereafter:

And Chris went to work on it immediately! And this time (for all of you who've noticed his sexy shirtless self) with a shirt on!

Step 1:

 Step 2:

And just like that, the green eyed monster was banished!

MUUUCCHH better! On to the next task...

Honey, it all takes time. And we women are in such a hurry to get the decorating done. It looks splendid. And your man is a dear for being so handy. (Mine isn't...)

New light fixtures really can make all the difference! I'm a huge believer in dimmers to make all the shortcomings of my house fade away :)

I LOVE hanging a new light fixture and yours looks fab! I wish my hubs could hang one with just a step 1 and 2. His step 1 and 2 seem to take around 4 hours to do. Hmmm. Perhaps it's time I try the step 1 and 2! Thanks for stopping by my blog :).
