The Biggest Gardner Chandelier Yet


For those of you who follow along over here you know my love for chandeliers. And we have just about completed our chandy makeovers in our new home. My previous post showed my hubby installing this one over our stairs. This is the view looking up. It is hard to capture the full size of this one but it is just about as tall as our four year old if that gives you any idea. I have to admit I was wringing my hands while watching him steady himself on the ladder then leaning over and with one arm bearing the full weight of this in all of its glory getting it to hook. His arm was trembling due to the weight and I had to look down on the ground and keep thinking "please don't fall, please don't fall, please don't fall". I told him several times leading up to this installation that I just wanted to hire it out but he insisted he could do it. I knew he could do it. But would he be greatly injured doing it? Alas, all is well and it is a shining light in our home so to speak.

We have made arrangements to pick up two smaller chandys in the next couple of weeks. One will go in the girl's room downstairs and the next one depending on its size just outside the master bedroom door. We really scored when we picked up the one shown above. We also got one just like it but a bit smaller plus the owner said we could just have the match sconces so yipee! I am working on some ideas how to use the sconces. They may not be functional but may add a bit of elegance to a wall.

Thanks to all the well wishes on our anniversary! I received some touching comments. Thank you friends!
