I finally took my spray painted chandelier down. But only because I thought I was getting a new one this weekend. Saturday morning, I took it down and just knew a new one would be in its placethat evening. Boy was I wrong. I headed to Lowes and Home Depot in search of my new chandelier.
First was Lowes, but nothing really spoke to me. Besides I kind of knew the one I wanted was somewhere else. Next stop was Home Depot. I walked up and down the aisles several times not seeing the one I chose online. I asked an associate where I could find the one I was looking for. He kindly pointed out to me that this one was only available online. There was no store SKU# that indicated it was available in store. Bummer! Okay, fine, I'll just choose another one. I bought one that I thought was nice and would have to work. I went home but couldn't make myself put it up. It wasn't the one I wanted so why install it. I went back to Home Depot and returned it.
I'll be placing on order for a new one this week, but would like to know your opinion. I originally wanted a drum pendant but after reading several comments and reviews, they don't seem to give off much light in a room. So I decided to go with something nickel that has at least five lights on it. Not too large but large enough to fill the space. I think anything too big will make the dining room feel too stuffy and formal.
This is the one I bought and returned. I liked it but wasn't fond of the cloth shades.
Here are the chandeliers I'm trying to choose between.
Option 1: Love the simpleness and clean lines.
Option 2: Love the line detail the middle.
Option 3: Like it but not sure about the egg shape at the bottom.
Option 4: Very pretty but I think it may be too ornate and large for my space. It may work for the foyer though.
What do you think? Right now there's a hole in the ceiling and the wires are taunting me.
