It was love at first sight. I went to lunch with some of my friends from work on Friday and decided to stop in one of my favorite stores in Homewood, The Royal Standard (see the monogrammed trashcans in the background), to see if they had any chandeliers that might work for my diningroom. I really expected that I would have to look at quite a few places before I found one that WOW’d me and fit the budget. But, I just about jumped up and down with glee as I walked back and looked at the very few chandeliers they even carry. There it was, hanging in all its glory! Just waiting for me to come and buy it. And, when I checked the pricetag, it was scrawled in red marker with the clearance price of $158! SOLD! to me! Original price was $395, this was SO much better. This was one of the styles that I have seen lately that really caught my eye. It had the perfect shape and elegant, yet rustic look that I was going for.
What a beauty and I’m so happy with the deal I got too. Now it’s on to figuring out how to get the foyer light hung. That one is going to be much more of a challenge, but me and the hubby will try to get it done too. Might be next weekend before we tackle that one. I’m really happy to get this one up for now! Getting both of these lights at the same time has been so much fun. The brass is almost gone now!

That fixture’s a beauty all right, but what impresses me the most is your ability to install it yourself! Your arms must have been positively aching after that!!
You’re a can-do kind of woman…good for you!!

Wow, that is pretty! Congrats on your recent win of a giveaway! You are well deserving!
Great find Rhoda. It really is the “crowning glory” of your dining room. Just perfect.
I loved that store! I remember they had soooo many wonderful things. Thanks for taking all the “B’s” there.
