My room finally has lighting. We've had this chandelier put away for months. What do you think? My husband thought it would be too big, but I insisted, there isn't a such thing.

I blogged about my DIY journey in creating spots for my entrance or--an ode to Samuel Taylor Coleridge's Christabel--my threshold. The ceiling pain color is "Caviar" by Sherwin Williams.
