Get ready for our next big re-decorating project. This one may end up being our most challenging yet! We're taking down this shiny gold, too-small-for-the-space chandelier in our two-story entryway and replacing it with a larger bronze fixture.
Most people in their right minds would hire this job done, but not us! The estimate for that was $250+, way more than we were willing to pay. For the modest sum of $25, we rented this fine two-level scaffold and Spouse will hang it for free!
My dad picked up the scaffold at the rental place for us, then somehow he and I set it all up. (Yes, it was very heavy lifting those braces over our heads!)
This is the new chandelier, still in the box. I'm under strict orders not to unpack it yet, but I cannot wait much longer! Instead of the current six lights, this one has two levels with nine lights, so it should be much brighter and have a much bigger visual impact. We purchased amber sconces to replace the white ones which came with the light.
Meanwhile, the kitties have been testing the scaffold for strength. It seems to meet with their approval, and they're enjoying the view.
