Remember the farm table and West Elm chandelier we hung up last year? It didn’t work out well when Christmas came because we wanted to put the Christmas tree by the window so we can see it all the time rather than have it in the other room where we’d never see it. So we switched tables and moved the small black dining table back there. After Christmas we realized we liked the farm table where it is now in the formal dining room so we left it there.
Now the problem was the West Elm chandelier looked funny with a small black dining table. So I wanted to buy the globe pendant that I’ve been eyeing from West Elm for some time now. One weekend it was 20% off so I went for it and bought it.
It took longer than expected to do this one afternoon because we had to take down the ugly chandelier in the formal dining room, take down the West Elm chandelier and put it back up in the formal dining room and then install the globe pendant.
It wasn’t easy though. At one point, the chandelier was wired wrong and almost caught on fire. Also with the globe pendant the wiring/rope was sooo long so we had to cut it before installing it.
Now it’s perfect in both rooms! Stay tuned for the next post with an update on the formal dining room.
According to #29 on 30 Signs You’re Almost 30, I’ve graduated from IKEA to West Elm, woohoo!
