About two months ago I purchased two simple chandeliers at Lowe’s for about $60 each. (We received 20% off that day so saved a little on each one which are regularly priced at $79 apiece). I had a vision of hanging them in the entry to add some interest when you first enter our home but wasn’t sure how it would all come together. After painting the wall with the metallic paint it really ended up working well and the paint glistens at night when the lights reflect off of it.
Our home is decorated simply and I was a little concerned these might be too dressy. But the basic wrought iron look and minimal crystals ended up adding just the right flair I was hoping to achieve. So here’s proof that even in a home that doesn’t have a lot of drama in its bone structure (like soaring ceilings or expansive rooms), you can add well-placed fixtures to give you that little decorating edge!
(Now I need to relocate the Shell lamp to a new space…..)
