My dining room is talking to me...

and she really, really wants this chandelier from Pottery Barn. Isn't it gorgeous?? Since Pottery Barn is just not in my budget, I have to make do. :(
Scroll down to see what I came up with.

Plain Jane before. I added a little crystal garland I already had and while its nothing like the one I really want, it was affordable!! It adds a little sparkle and for now it will do.
What do y'all think?? Oh, and I am very aware of the blah walls, but that is another post.

I think I like your light better than the one from Pottery Barn. I am serious too...where did you get that dining room light? I am on a quest to replace the chandelier in my dining room and trying to stick to an affordable option.
Beautiful home and blog : )

I really like it, I think I actually like it BETTER than the PB one... Plus you can change it out, using different garlands for different seasons...

I sure like the chandelier light you have better. :) It looks prim to me. You have such a lovely home. Can't wait to see more of it!

I love yours! And if you change your mind on the sparkles it will be a whole lot chaper than buying a new fixture!

I love it! Is this the one that came with the house? I think it's great! You can always add those crystals to it too for more sparkle. The muffin tins look so cute too!

That looks AMAZING!

I'm joining in the chorus to say I like yours better than the Pottery Barn one. More understated and also it could be easily changed if you want a different look.
