Orb Chandelier

We have been living in our home for over a year now and we have made several improvements. We bought the house with a lot of little changes in mind. We are taking our time updating our home painting, changing lights, and decorating. I like to DIY whenever I can but that becomes a big challenge when you have young kids. Which is one reason why it’s taking so long to re-do things. Our most recent update is this beautiful Y-Decor Rustic Bronze Orb 6-Light Circular Foyer Chandelier by Y-Decor.

We used to have an ugly, shiny gold pendant light hanging in this foyer. It was an eye sore. I couldn’t stand it and I honestly don’t know why it has taken me so long to replace it. Well……choosing the new light was a bit challenging because there are SO many awesome chandeliers out there. I ended up falling in love with the Orb Chandelier though. Pinterest was my best friend during this process. I found our chandelier on Overstock.com. It was a really good price and I got an additional 10% off PLUS 4% cash back through Ebates. The chandelier came mostly assembled. We had to hang some of the crystals on the chandelier, but it was easy.

We hired an electrician to come hang it since our foyer is 22 feet high. He had the tallest ladder available and it almost didn’t make it. He had to stand on the very top….scary! The electrician was actually more than the chandelier! Unfortunately they also charged for travel time which doubled what it would have cost. I’m still happy that we decided to hire them to hang it. There would have been no way we could have gotten up there and done it ourselves safely OR successfully.

I constantly second guessed my choice in this chandelier until it was hung. Now that it’s up I love it so much. It’s perfect for our foyer. It really opened my eyes to how much changing a light fixture can update a space. It’s even easier than paint!

Now I am shopping around for a chandelier to hang in our dining room. There is another large gold one in there that desperately needs to be replaced or painted. I have been toying around with the idea of painting it because the style of that chandelier is still nice. I don’t know yet. Pinterest here I come!
