TGIF, Everyone! Today I’m going to share a quick project I just now completed. Adding gobs of sparkly crystals to the chandelier in my closet! Come check out a girly closet chandelier!
The other day I shared with you the manly chandelier I put in my husband’s closet. To read more about that you can see it here: A Manly Closet Chandelier! It turned out so well I couldn’t wait to add the crystals to my new closet chandelier! To recap, this is the light fixture in my closet (and my husband’s) before the electrician came this week. Nothing to write home about for sure.
After a visit from our neighborhood electrician, this is what he installed in my closet. I brought this vintage beauty with me from our last house. It was a gift to me from my sweet best friend and shopping buddy extraordinaire. This vintage beauty has 6 arms and tons of holes making for lots of delicious crystal opportunities! (I apologize for the blurry picture, but it really doesn’t matter without the crystals anyway, right?)
I decided to change it up a bit and add different types of crystals to this chandelier. Not only did I use two different sizes of teardrop crystals, I added some french pendalogue crystals from my stash. I figured while I was at it, I’d add some glass crystal chain as well. It took me about an hour to polish and attach all of the crystals, but it was well worth my time. Totally in love! ( French Pendalogue Crystals here ) ( Glass Crystal Chain here )
Sadly, the photos don’t do it justice. I really love using different types of crystals on the same fixture. It gives the chandelier more of an eclectic vibe. Plus, if you don’t have enough of one type of crystal, it’s cool to mix it up. This type of chandelier can easily hold 60 or more crystals!
Meanwhile, my sweet girl, Anique, is quite pleased! She donned a new hat for the occasion and found her pearls.
Anique has a flair for the dramatic so she really loves our new closet chandelier, too!
A quick before and after of my closet. What do you think? Round florescent lighting or a girly chandelier? Because I had the chandelier and crystals on hand, my only cost was the electrician’s fee and it was well worth it! Naturally the ONLY thing missing is a dimmer switch. This is going on my husband’s honey-do list asap.
I hope you have a LOVELY weekend! Thank you as always for stopping by and for your sweet comments! I always love hearing from you, so please drop me a line and share me with your friends! xoxo Dell
