Guild Shop Chandelier.

Remember the chandelier from the Guild Shop I previously blogged about here and here?  Justin hung it this weekend!  I originally was going to hang it in our entry way, but after thinking about it some more, decided there may be better places where it would be more visible.  So we cruised around the house looking for other options.  Justin actually came up with the idea to hang it where we did.  And he was totally right -- he's a keeper!  He hung it on our second floor in the little area between our kitchen and dining room (and right outside of the powder room).  Here's the view of it as you get on the second floor.


I love the touch of glam it adds to an otherwise boring hallway.  In case you're curious, that archway over there to the left is where the powder room is.


This is the view from the opposite direction looking into the dining and living room from the kitchen.  If you look closely you can see Justin lounging in the living room admiring his handiwork.  (It's like a game of Where's Waldo without the red stripes and glasses!)  And for the record, our kitchen is not sherbet green -- the lighting wasn't ideal.


We ended up just replacing the candle covers and adding some more crystal prisms (there were quite a few missing).   There's now a mix of the old crystals and new ones, but since I was able to find nearly identical crystals online, you can't tell the difference.


{Side note: see those flowers in the background by the mirror?  I recently went to the dentist to get my first-ever cavity filled and was pretty nervous thanks to a terrible wisdom teeth removal experience.  Justin had a gorgeous bouquet of tulips, hydrangeas, roses and lilies delivered to my office before I went to help calm my nerves.  Super sweet!} 

But back to the chandy . . . as Justin said, "it's pretty baller to have a chandelier in your hallway."  And I couldn't agree more! 


Hope you all had a great weekend!

  1. That thing is beautiful! It looks perfect in that spot.

    And how sweet on the flowers. I hate dentists... unfortunately for me I have sensitive teeth [super sensitive] and have had so many fillings done I don't even think I could get nervous if I tried, anymore lol.

  18. Okay -- I have lots to comment on!! I've been behind. (twss)

    1. I love the chandy, and love seeing the panned back shots of your house! it's so pretty, love the arched doorways. and of course you're ballers, duh.

    2. Your pantry turned out great! I too, collect cans of pumpkin and remember the shortage with a hint of panic. I'd like some Trader Joes cornbread mix, please. K, thanks.

    3. I'm voting for the chipper fabric as drapes. But both are grand.

    4. And lastly, LOVE your weekend in Austin! Reminds me I need to get down there more often. And eat at your recommended places!! I can just picture you strolling around in your cardi.

    xoxo
