I've been toying with the idea of a chandelier in my dining room. Most look at me and say "What"?, because it's so NOT me but if I can find a kick-ass turquoise colored one, it's going up. It's got to be whimsical though. Oh, but the thought of cleaning it....
It helps to have a tall ceiling. We had a bathroom on our first floor that had a 9 1/2' high ceiling above the drop ceiling the previous owners installed. I thought it would be fun to rip out the old drop ceiling and put a chandelier in the room. We then opted to go modern and hung the IKEA Knappa Pendant and it looks awesome.
Ohhh, I want that chandelier. Does anyone know where I can find one like it for a reasonable price?
@Lyonstill Why don't you find an afordable chandalier you like the shape of make it turquoise yourself? There are LOTS of paint options out there, and i think it would be rather easy to DIY. Just take off the crystals and paint with the right paint for the material. Bam Perfect lighting that you want.I have an old chandelier from my great grandmothers. I have such plans for it. Not sure where yet. But it will be used in my places. I'm thinking my bedroom too... only I'd have to figure out a way to get in the right location...
CRICHELLE DESIGNS: I've look at craigs list and can't find the perfect one but I'm with you on DIYing one. So I will continue the search. I would love to see what you do with your Great Grandmothers. Thanks so much. :o)
