so today i thought i’d show you my new and improved ceiling fixtures for my little room redo. i can tell you’re overflowing with excitement.

but first, i need to send a big ginormous thank you to the amazing, brilliant and super duper talented eddie ross. back in january he had a lowe’s gift card giveaway and i was the lucky winner. needless to say i was really happy and really excited.

so i used this wonderful gift to purchase this light fixture for my room. it replaced a pretty ugly fan which can be seen here. i knew i wanted a chandelier …. i new i needed something with a bit of sparkle …and it needed to fit into my very small budget. but i guess ‘free’ fits into any budget. right? so here it is in all of it’s glory.

i just love it. perfect for the space and it suited all my needs perfectly. it even looks great with my little shaker peg rail. so, again, a huge thanks to eddie ross!!

loveliness!

the ceiling fixture also needed replaced in the bedroom portion of the space. again, the new fixture also replaced a super ulgy fan which can be seen here. i opted for another fan, this one, as some of my guests really do like it and use it.  check it out: 

 i actually think ceiling fans have come a long way! i especially love the fans that do not have pull cords! what a difference, right? and this fan really felt right for the space. the actual light portion reminded me of a barn light.

now, if they could just come up with an easier way to install them! if you ever go to install a ceiling fan (especially one with a remote … ie. no pull cords) plan to have a friend on hand. i needed to stack a box on a ladder on a bed. it was tramatic.

piece by piece my lovely little room is coming along. and, if i can get myself together i’m hoping to show you my curtains tomorrow. i just love them. stay tuned!

    Ack!! you stood on a ladder on a box on a bed! traumatic indeed.

    Love the chandi… May need to hit up lowes as I am looking for one for my entry.

    A box. On a ladder. On a bed. Heck, are you mad? The fan really is beautiful, but you are lucky to be around to enjoy it! Don’t do that again, please, I’d sure miss your blog! 😉
    Reminds me… gotta find a suicidal person to get my new Tord Lundgren lampshade up. Sure as hell won’t be me on that ladder!

    Boontje. Tord Boontje. Sorry, brainfreeze! If you are after really beautiful, quirky stuff to spice up an otherwise not- so interesting room, check that guy out!

    The both look FABULOUS! I really love the chandy and I know that I couldn’t survive summer if I didn’t have a fan in my room. Not exactly the moset gorgeous thing but I love the breeze! BTW, I heart ER too!

    How great! Love the new fixture — what a treat to win it from Eddie!!

    Okay, I’m sorry that I can’t focus on the light fixtures. The fabric on the curtain! I want it! I love it! So pretty.

    Love the lights you picked, too. Esp. that fan. I’m a big of the ceiling fan, and I like them in guest rooms. Nice for some air flow and white noise, too.

    Beautiful! And the Schrute Farms sign… love it. 🙂

    This post is definitely not complete without a picture of you trying to injure yourself installing a ceiling fan!

    Both fixtures look great and I’m green with envy over this room, I just love it!

    I’m pretty sure I saw Eddie in a Subway in a tiny little town in CT quite a few months ago. If it wasn’t him he certainly has a twin from head to toe in CT.

    Chandelier looks great and just the right size. Glad you had the chance to win it!

    I have been looking for an affordable ceiling fan that doesn’t make me feel pukey. Thank you! Thank you!

    Love your blog!
