My New Blue/Green Crystal Chandelier


I found this chandelier on Craigslist a few weeks ago. When I had seen the picture of the chandelier I was planning to put it in my guest room, because it looked very blue, which is the color of my guestroom. When I met up with the person to get this chandelier it was much more green the I expected, but I was pleasantly surprised because the color was perfect for my main living area, which I have also been looking for a chandelier for. I love how unique this one is.

Here pictured above is the picture of the chandelier from the craigslist add. From the add I thought the crystals were clear, and probably plastic because the person was only asking 94.00 dollars or best offer. Whenever someone says or best offer I always feel I should try to get a better deal, so I emailed him and offered 75 which he said yes too. When I got the chandelier I kind of felt bad for getting it for such a cheap price because the crystals were not plastic at all they are real beautiful crystals and not just that, they are not the normal clear they are a gorgeous light blue-green color so unique and perfect for my house!

I found the ceiling medallion on Ebay. I just love the look the ceiling medallion gives the chandelier and the whole room, it makes it so much more dramatic, which I love! My step Dad was so nice to come over and hang up the chandelier and the medallion, he also installed a dimmer switch on the light switch that controls the light of the Chandelier.

The chandelier is hanging above my coffee table (I am washing my soft white rug I usually have here, looks weird to me in the photo without it)

Bella & Lacie see a camera and know to pose haha.

 There they go again! Lol. I promise I did not put them there, they do this stuff on their own, they are so cute.
 
I LOVE the colored/ tinted crystals!!!

You get  just a tiny bit of a sneak peek of my counter tops new look in the background of this photo and a few others, I just reviewed the product Giani Granite this past weekend as soon as it dries (14 days!) I will being doing a post to share with you all, I can't wait so far I am loving it!


I made sure to hang the chandelier  high enough that you can still see the TV from all different areas!
 I love how pretty the chandelier looks reflecting in the big mirror.



 See you next time!

  27. What a gorgeous living room :)

  28. Yup, a picture can be a little deceiving; sometimes what you see in pictures is different from what you actually. Good thing is, even though it is green, you have a place to hang it. The chandelier looks great in your living room area! It blended with the color of the room and made it look serene.

  29. It really belongs! :D The room is lovely with only a few touches of blue green, and I think the chandelier did nothing but enhance it. On another note, don’t be too bothered that you got it at a cheaper price. You should actually be excited about it! After all, price is never an indicator of the kind of beauty and quality an item has. It’s still classy for me. ;]
