Globe-Shade Chandelier

I’ve been at a loss about what to do regarding the lighting situation in the dining room, Piano room, and entry.

I just saw this posted to Pinterest by my new blog bff that I’ve never met, Victoria Elizabeth Barnes and I’m in LOVE.

I don’t know the original source of the image but if you have any ideas, let me know.

Obviously this chandelier is waaay too big for any of the spaces I’m thinking of. My entry is grand and pretty but not that grand. I love the globes though. It’s got a kind of “look what we can do with electricity…closed lights” look to it which I love.
It’s different but still period. AND, the best part is I can get any simple chandelier and add the globes to it for $5 each from home depot!

I’ve started a collection of chandeliers that I’m thinking over.  Some of these would be great with a globe upgrade.  Others would do just fine on their own.

Click on the images to go to the sellers website and support the blog in the process.

What do you think? Any that stand out to you? I’m really loving this globe option. It takes the stress off finding a super awesome chandelier at a good price. I can get a plan, simple, builder’s grade chandelier and make it look awesome with an inexpensive tweak!
