I did this post last year on how I broke our beautiful old chandelier that my husband hung over our master bathtub and SAME DAY he installed it.
I tried to hot glue the broken, dangling, limp arm back on.
I tried to use wire to “rig” it back up.
I tried to ignore it.
I considered hiring a welder to weld it back together.
And then…. I just got tired of looking at it. Seriously, every day I had to look out of my shower and see that broken arm pointing out.
So, we got a new chandelier.
And my adorable husband was brilliant enough to wire it while talking on the phone.
And brilliant enough to pick me up a ceiling medallion because he knows what I like and EVERY chandelier should have a medallion with it!
And then, without me even asking, he was brilliant enough to put a dimmer on it. So I can have lighting like this:
Or like this:
He is brilliant and knows my taste so well and I don’t even have to ask anymore. He just does it like he knows I will love it.
And I am one content and happy woman.
(Sidenote: the medallion was done in 2.38 minutes by spray painting it in a black gloss and dry brushing Modern Masters Antique Bronze over it. Chandelier came from Lowes. The old chandelier is up for grabs to anyone who wants it! Just email me.)
What a magnificent bathroom and gorgeous chandelier! I love it!~Liz
WOW! How fun; Looks gorgeous!!!!
LLLOOOVE the new chandelier. What a hubbie you have. (Envy….my hubs doesn’t even know where MY tool kit is….get it? Good thing he’s cute!)
Have a great week!
Love your choice of chandelier. Also loving the ceiling medallion, the wall finish and your mirror. The area is gorgeous!
nice! I can’t wait til one day I have a master bathroom tub to hang a chadelier over! I think I will also request a dimmer!
It looks great!! Such a lucky gal with a wonderful husband!
It’s beautiful. It makes me want to soak in the tub with a glass of wine and the dimmer switch set on low! “slapping myself back to reality”. It looks perfect! Your room is beautiful too! Who does your faux painting? …..just kidding!
It is really beautiful and the way your husband blessed you is so sweet. I love the old and the new. I have to remember the medallion thing.
Wow! The chandelier is beautiful but your bathroom is gorgeous! Love the mirror…and the dimmer is just perfection. All of it makes me want to take a long bubble bath with a glass of wine, candles and smooth jazz.
Have a great week!
Love that kind of hubby! Chandelier looks amazing. Can’t be lookin’ at a broken chandelier, it puts you in a bad mood!
Love it Jennifer! It looks fabulous!
Love the new chandelier! So pretty!
I’ve been wondering about the whole medallion thing – to have or not to have. Thanks for your thoughts! Beautiful space but sad about your old chandelier!
I love the new so much better! Beautiful!
