This weekend was freezing. Totally bitter and I never wanted to leave the house. So I didn't. Well, once a day but that was it.
One thing I finally got to was taking updated pictures of my new light in the dressing room. Reason for taking so long?
I had to clean it. The room was a complete disaster that was even embarrassing for me (my poor tidy husband must have been raging on the inside for days). So I had no excuses this weekend since I stayed inside for 20 of 24 hours every day :-)
For those of you who are just catching up, last week my husband and I installed a new light in my dressing room, thanks to the generosity of Home Depot Canada! They ponied up $100 to let me buy something to spruce up my house! Lucky for me, it was just in time for the 20% off all interior light fixtures sale!
As a reminder, here is a pic of the room before:
So here it is :-) The Hampton Bay Capiz Chandelier, in my dressing room!
It was surprisingly simple to install. For once, all the pieces fit and we were able to have the light sit flush with the ceiling. The medallion came with the house - it covers up the butcher's job that was done for a previous light that left a massive hole in the ceiling, so we opted to keep it.
Once the light was up, I attached each line of capiz shells to the fixture, and that was about it! I was really impressed with how user-friendly the light was.
The light also fits a lot better than the old one. I really loved the light that was in there, but it was just. too. big. I could walk under it but no one else could, and if I had my hair in a towel, I was wacking it left right and centre. This is definitely a more appropriate fixture for the room.
Isn't it amazing how something that took all of an hour to install can make such a difference?
Special thanks to the Home Depot (of course) and Sara at Russet Street Reno for giving me the idea that capiz and dressing rooms are a match made in (decor) heaven!
Where did the old light fixture go?
In the guest bedroom!!
Clearly, there is still alot of work to be done in that room - but at least it has a light now!
