  1. Thank you SOOO much for this! I just found the same exact chandeliers from somebody and I am picking them up next week. Do you happen to know what brand this chandelier is or what store it’s from? Also, will the paper work on the candlesticks if they have drips at the top of the candle? I’m really wanting to cover those up.

      Lucky you! Glad it was helpful. Yes, you’ll be able to easily cover up the drips and give it a new look. Have fun!

  2. Oh my goodness, Lora! Sooo adorable!!! Congratulations on being featured this week at Thursday Favorite Things!!! If you haven’t shared with Share Your Style yet, I am one of the new hostesses and I’d love to feature your chandelier makeover next week. 🙂

    Have a lovely weekend and I shared to my FB page and others,
    Barb 🙂

      Your welcome, Cecilia!

  4. Loved this post! I have a simple brass chandelier over my kitchen table and I love the idea of recovering the 30 year old candles. Now to find some paper I like! Also, I love your new picture; very pretty and flattering!!

      You’re too sweet, Kathy! Thanks;) New glasses were the excuse to snap a few while I was taking my son’s senior pics! Good luck finding some cute paper!

    Hi Lora, I love the chandelier you updated. It is beautiful! I totally agree that they are not just for the dining room. I have a small version of a Crystal light when I enter my bedroom. Also, I am planning an update of my laundry room and I want to put a smaller version of a chandelier in that room too. Why not glitz up an otherwise boring task! Thanks for the inspiration!!

      I love the idea of a chandelier in a laundry room, Pam! Would never have thought of that one; great idea!

    2. Hi, I have the same Chandelier as you have shown. I inherited it and always wanted to know what make or origin it was from. Do you have any details about it. Thank you , Donna

      1. Lora Bloomquist says:

        Unfortunately, I don’t have many details, Donna. My mom said it was in the dining room when they bought the house in 1969. The previous owner said it was not original to the 1936 tudor house; she had bought it. That’s all I know.

      2. Lora Bloomquist says:

        Sorry, I don’t have any further info for you, Donna:( My mom said it was hanging in our home when they bought it in 1969. Supposedly the former owner said she bought it for the 1936 tudor; it wasn’t original.
