Vintage Chandelier

Look at this adorable chandelier. It was not always so cute but I have unfortunately misplaced the before picture. It was two toned pale yellow and bronze. I have wanted to do something with it for sometime but did not know what. So my honey took over and painted it and I love it. He used a gold leaf paint and hand painted the little accents. The rest he spray painted and antiqued. It does look very vintage. The only thing that I have been debating is does it need crystals? The other question is see the sconces in the back ground? Do we need to do the same with those? Can't decide. Please let me know what you think.

A while back I was at pottery barn and they had displayed huge arrangements of flowers on their tables. I loved the idea of bringing the outdoors in. So last night my honey and I stayed up past our bedtime and did just that. We brought in flowers, pots and accessories. We brought in a table we weren't using and set it up in the dining room. It probably won't stay there permanently but for now it is stunning. It really does bring a feeling of being outside.

I am linking up to My Uncommon Slice of Suburbia for Tuesday's Treasures.

I am grateful that spring is inside my house and is finally making its way on the outside.

I think it looks like it's perfectly suited for your dining room. You have the mixed look of painted and wood furniture! Beautiful, along with your Spring vignette!
Take care!
