Chandy Shades - The Last Part Of The Makeover

Seems like it takes forever sometimes to finish a project.  When I showed you my Breakfast area makeover , I still had chandy shades on order.  They finally came and I really like them.  They totally change the look of the chandy.

 I love the soft linen colored fabric and the barrel shape.


This is what came with the chandy, not bad, but not my style.  Just a little too country for my taste.  I totally love this chandy, I was looking online at it a few years ago and didn't know that my son copied down the information .  He surprised me with it.  So it is very special to me.


Much better don't you agree, but maybe a little trim would make them even better.


Ok, to trim or not to trim, that is the question.   

This area is finally all done - (oops I just noticed the kitchen island, I need to paint that too ) Next up is the Living Room and Dining Areas.  I still have tons of painting to do before those new floors go down. 


 If you missed the family room makeover, you can see that here.



You can still link up to Inspire Me.  So much to see so check a few things out.

  7. You never slow down, Marty! I love the chandy and I have to ask you a question. When I bought my chandy it didn't have shades and the plastic "candlesticks" are quite short. Can I buy taller ones somewhere so I can add shades? Do you know where? I would be so grateful if you could help.

  11. The new shades really change the personality of the chandelier don't they! I think they look great. I guess you could use paper clips to quickly attach some trim and see if you like it. Good luck with all the painting you still have to do. Did you decide on how you are going to do the flooring near the kitchen?

  17. I knew you would choose those shades, Marty and they look fabulous! I like them plain right now, but some one suggested paper clipping trim to try it out - would love to see it. Jane

  20. Marty, just wanted to tell you that I used your apple with the gold stem and leaf idea, but used a wooden apple. You can see it on my Pinterest page at https://www.pinterest.com/sweetdreamschil/ on my "ongoing projects" board. When I sprayed the stem some of the gold leaked through (thought I had it covered good with painter's tape) but the results I'm really liking so I didn't paint over it.
    Can't wait to see your new floors! Always look forward to your posts in my e-mail.

  23. Those look nice, Marty. They look fine like they are, but if you add trim I would just try a simple neutral flat trim.

  24. Love your new chandy shades, Marty! I like how they look with your drapes in the background and the colors you have going on. I think they suit the chandelier, too. I like that they are plain - it allows the chandelier to stand out over the shades.
