Another Day Another Light Fixture

For our anniversary, the Husband paid an electrician to install the new light fixture I got for our dining room. And I paid someone to give me a massage so the Husband doesn’t have to. Aren’t we a thoughtful couple?

We’ve been lightless since the bubble chandelier debacle a few months ago and I finally took Elizabeth’s advice and opted to add more natural texture to the space. It’s not absolutely perfect, but it was relatively cheap and does the trick. I’m the worst at photographing interiors so trust that this looks better in real life. And it gives off a romantic glow.

    I think it looks pretty good in there! Maybe a larger size would have fit the scale of the room better, but I’m sure those don;t come cheap.

    Your dining room actually inspired me to get a new dining table/chairs back in early spring, although mine aren’t as fancy and the wall behind it is well, it’s damn knotty pine paneling for the time being: http://theaprilblake.com/2011/04/774/

    • Thanks April! Actually, the pendant looks larger in person. I don’t know if it’s my camera lens or just my angles that make it seem bity. I would definitely have gone bigger if that size was available though.

      I love your dining room chairs! How do you feel about painting your paneling. It’s totally doable and would make a huge difference. I recommend white.
