       This had been the lighting in my formal dining room since our house was built 13yrs ago.

   I remember being mad about not having a chandelier, thinking that eventually we would put one in.      Time went on (and on and on) Life was busy and it became one of those things you just don't notice unless company comes. Spending more time at home the last few years has me in the mood to redo and get things done. Funny how that happens. Anyway long story short . Guess what I got for my Anniversary last week? Yep this little beauty. 

 Because I couldn't just hang the chandy all by itself I had to have a medallion too. Since hubby was feeling extremely generous (it was our 28th anniversary after all) I picked one up.  
I started with this:

 and turned it into this
I will give you the how too later in the week
Tomorrow I will be posting How To info for finding the right chandelier including hanging tips etc so  Please come back
I am linking up with Marla at Always Nesting woo hoo

  1. Woo Hoo! I love that chandelier and it looks awesome with the medallion.

    Thanks for joining the party and taking a little break from time spent being grandma.

  2. First off happy anniversary we will be celebrating ours on the 5th of may 26 years. Anyway that is gorgous, and I think the madallion makes it. When you see it just white and then what you did to it, it looks amazing. Very good job, enjoy!!


  3. Good Morning Debbie Sweetie...
    Happy Anniversary first off. So tickled for the two of you. Sounds like you had fun picking out a chandelier. I love it. I can't wait to see how you did this medallion. Just beautiful it is. What a beautiful choice you made.

    Hope you have a beautiful week sweetie. Country hugs...Sherry

  19. This chandelier is really beautiful, Debbie. Btw -- I have that same light fixture in my kitchen above the sink. Yes, I've been meaning to replace it for a LONG time -- amazing how we tend to grow accustomed to things and kind of forget to replace them.
