|Ceiling fan in our bedroom. Ick.|
|I thought these (and their ilk) were a little bit small for the |
price, and the chandelier itself didn't look amazing, so
I'm making something similar out of materials I like better.
Today I am hoping I can co-opt dear Howard to help me with something. Our bedroom has a really boring white ceiling fan and I've wanted to change it for months now, especially since I spruced up the master bath. I found a really neat chandelier with a black shade which piqued my interest, but I thought, hey, why not use the idea and upgrade. So I ordered a nicer, larger chandelier and a really cool shade to fit it. The chandelier came a week ago and has been sitting in the foyer in a box ever since. According to the UPS tracking site, the shade is finally going to come today so maybe, maybe, maybe I can get Howard to help me hang it today. It's simple enough to change a light fixture, but this one is really heavy and I'd be working at a height of 5 feet off the ground instead of just 2 like I was in the bathroom and closet. Time to call in the pros.
