I looked for replacement chandeliers at...
None of these seemed to be what the room called for.
Then I found a pair of lights I really liked at a resale shop called The Refind Room.
There were some quirks with overhead lighting in this room. The existing chandelier was centered on the room but not on the fireplace. Because I plan for the fireplace to be the focal point I needed it to be centered.
Some adjustments were made and then all was well.
No worries...this picture does not reflect the end of this story.
A three week wait for the ceiling to be painted and...finally the day arrived. But the painter was a no-show. He had double booked, so a bit more of a delay. There are plenty of reasons for lapses between posts and this is one of them.
I really am very happy with the glow they give to the room and the way they refect in the mirror. All's well that ends well. Of course, the end is not quite here. Next post will be about that drapery fabric I talked about eons ago.
