Vintage Kitchen Chandelier…..

OK….I can already tell. This is going to be the ‘Year of Lighting’ here at Oak Cottage.

A couple of weeks ago we were out of town and found this gorgeous, vintage chandelier……had to have it!

We no longer have an ugly fluorescent square light in our kitchen…..woohoo! I detested that light…but just hadn’t found the right one to take its place. {Well, actually, I HAD found some…but since they cost more than the whole cottage, I kinda figured I better keep looking and keep my mind open.}

And, then, in walked lit up this lovely! {I’m going to be painting the black cord to match the chain so it doesn’t stick out so badly.}

Excuse the mess…..we were in the process of a few projects……

One of the biggies on our list is to get rid of the popcorn ceiling. Why in the world do they put those things in???  Ugh.

Lighting can make or break a room. Have you ever walked around your home to see if you might want to change out lights to change the feel of the whole room? That’s what we’ve been doing around here lately. The consensus? Yep…we want to change all of ‘em!

Happy Tuesday~

  1. I scored a free, in perfect condition, Williamsburg chandelier that I immediately spray painted, popped on 6 document print mini shades, gave my rectangular fluorescent ugly the heave ho and transformed our kitchen. What did it cost you say? Nothing, already had a left over spray can of flat black paint in the garage from another project. Loving my “new” light fixture!

  2. I love it! I walk around our house all of the time wondering what I can change, giggle. I have been looking for a pink chandelier for my art room xo

  3. I have been loving floor lamps….no electrician needed! My problem is I always find them while traveling and then the shipping costs more than the lamp.

  4. Love your new find!
    Your kitchen is wonderful!

  5. So pretty! I love your blog ;)

    I love, love your cup holder. Where did you find it? Another treasure find?

    • Hi, Sharon…it is a vintage French glass bottle rack. I just love them! You can find them at antique places, online, etc. Keep your eyes peeled….and look for good prices. They can be quite pricey! =)
