Sometimes you need to add a little “bling” to your dining area to make it POP. Try adding chandelier shades…..you can sometimes even find them at thrift stores. These were ordered from a catalog…I love leopard and just didn’t want to wait to find them somewhere cheaper even though the “find” is sometimes more fun than the result. I also got a matching chandelier cord in leopard that had a zipper to make it oh so easy to put on! The crystals actually came off a holiday decoration that was falling apart…sometimes you can get an extra thrill from “recycling”! Don’t be afraid to “let go” when it comes to decorating a light fixture that might just look too “blah” without shades…you can always recycle the shades when (or if) you get tired of them! Think “Bling” or at least think “Happy”!
