This upcoming weekend we are having a large gathering of family to our house for Faye’s blessing at our church, so we are in overdrive mode trying to tie up loose project ends. This long weekend, I finished painting our cabinets while Chris took to our exterior and tackled a few things that needed attention out there. We have a short checklist of things to get done this week before we welcome our families this weekend and one is our dining room chandelier.
It’s terribly off-centered, nowhere near our style and actually fell down a few months ago. Scary! Since that experience we’ve been browsing fixtures and trying to decide on a style we like. I ended up looking through my dining room pinterest board and instead of looking at the table and chairs–I glanced up at the lighting in place.
The classic drum shade–doubled up–I instantly fell for. I found a couple of drums that would work well in our space, either alone or with two.
Inspired by the linear lines and bare bulbs, I added these to our short list:
Turns out, I have a lot of photos of dining rooms with two fixtures lighting the table, but instead of drums, a couple of pendants.
I love both of these quirky-cool pendants that would look chic and unexpected in a dining setting.
The last pair I tossed into our chandelier-option-pool were these two out-of-the-ordinary ones that felt fresh!
The dining room chandelier is in the center of the great room so we’re definitely looking to make a statement here.
After mulling over all of our favorites, we did choose one and need to center the box and install it. Hopefully we’ll have that reveal for you later this week! Any guesses on which one we chose from above?
