Progress shots and lighting updates from my daughter’s room make-over
A huge Shout Out to Lamps Plus for sponsoring the chandelier in this space. Without their quality product and friendly service then room would be far less inspiring. I promise.
It’s in, it’s up, and I am happy-dancing around my daughter’s room as I admire her new light fixuture! I think I tend to underestimate the difference that magical lighting can have on a space. Don’t get me wrong, I know a new chandelier makes a big impact in a room, but I think I forget just HOW BIG of a change the right chandy can make. Check out what I mean below

I know…right?!? All of the heart and kissing emojis imaginable can’t measure up to how thrilled I am with this chandelier… but I’ll give it a try.
This Possini Euro Andre Chandelier truly took this teenage girl’s room from pretty to uber fancy!
Things I love about this fixture include:
*High end looks for a reasonable price
* A good width for this room and many dining room tables
*16 4. 875 watt SMD LED modules- Which means it comes with bulbs that I don’t plan on changing for a LONG TIME!
* 3000K Lights- Translation= It emits the perfect color (not too yellow or blue at night)
The Only Problem
I have to admit something to you though…It didn’t go off without a hitch. It’s not the chandelier’s fault…no really. It’s just that I didn’t measure correctly. The current state of things is how I imagined the chandelier looking, but in actuality the first attempt resulted in a chandelier that hung lower than my eyeballs. Not even joking. Thankfully I’m married to a particularly helpful husband who spent an hour an an half cutting, sanding, and JB Welding the rod of the chandelier to be the perfect length. Thanks Babe. I owe you big time!
Soooo, IF you plan to buy this (or any other) chandelier please learn from my mistake and check, double, and triple check the dimensions. Some fixtures come with a few different length rods, but this one doesn’t. It is totally my fault for not reading the description more carefully. In the end I could lie and say that I wish I had been more detail oriented, but that would probably have resulted in me choosing a different chandelier… so that would indeed be a lie .
