Dining room splurge

I have had this lovely (dripping with sarcasm) builders grade, 80’s style, brass chandelier in our dining room for years. I have lived with it long enough.

While walking the isles of Lowes (my heart races just mentioning that place). I found this amazing wrought iron-foyer chandelier on clearance.

Note the word FOYER- meaning for LARGE area. Well I scooped it up anyway. I am so glad I did, because it really makes a statement! Of course I will need to buy dimmer bulbs because you could land a 747 in my dining room its so bright!

Don’t be afraid to try something different- maybe an outdoor light fixture indoors or in my case a foyer sized chandelier in the dining room. Think outside the box-look beyond what you see….. Ok Im starting to sound like Yoda, me thinks?

  3. Hi Amanda,
    I am visiting via The Nester. I have had a few similar lovely hanging lights. Mine have been the larger single type I fondly called the operating room light. I love your new purchase, but think it would look especially spiffy in my foyer! ~Cathy~

    OMG I have coveted THAT fixture while at Lowe’s! I stare at it and think longingly…. if I only had somewhere to hang that. I don’t have a space large enough…but it is SO cool!! Looks like it could be in a castle. Way to go and it looks great in your house!!!

    Gorgeous! I love outdoor fixtures and have one in my foyer.

  7. Hey! I’ve seen that fixture too & it looks great in your DR. I’m all about thinking outside the box, great job.

    Lowes has some great clearance things for sure!

  8. Visiting from the Nester. I have that same 80’s chandelier in my kitchen. Looking for some inspiration to update. Thanks!!!
