Dining Room // Pendant

18 Dec

Well friends, we finally installed our rad new pendant! If you feel like testing your communication skills for fun, try hanging a light with your spouse. It was like World War 3 in our dining room for a few hours. Alas, she’s up and I am thrilled!

Here’s a little before photo with our vintage Danish dining table and chairs:


This is no epic after photo, but that’s actually what I love most about this little change: all we did was switch the pendant and it made a HUGE impact.




Of course, the Christmas garland won’t be up all year but it went up at the same time as this light so you get an after photo and a look at our holiday decor…double whammy! Just what you wanted, I know.

Someday, we’d like to swap out the slate floor for wood and there may or may not be wallpaper going up in the new year. I’m crossing my fingers we can make the wallpaper happen soon!

Happy Hump Day!

Carpe Diem,

    Hi, I really love this chandelier, but am a bit unsure about the bronze finish. Does yours look black or bronze?

      Hi! It is definitely a black finish. Some of the edges around the socket look “rubbed” so they are a golden bronze, but the overall light is black. Hope this helps!

        OK, thanks :)
