Bathroom makeover ~ beautiful lighting

Since I have too many photos of my bathroom makeover, I will split them up just a little. I don't want to bore you after the first few photos. The first thing we did was hung our new French chandelier before work even started. I bought it on Saturday and just could not wait until Thursday to see it hanging. Here is the old ceiling light which is plain and boring.

Here is my pretty new lighting. I just love everything about it. The color is old cream with brushed gold. It has crystals hanging from the leaves and flowers.

This lamp works in our bathroom as our ceilings on that side of the house are round.
They go up to 4 meters height in places. The old lighting just got lost on the tall ceilings. You can get an idea of the ceiling lines in this last photo. You can click on the photos to enlarge them.

It looks really nice! How grand a bathroom that has a chandelier! Oh my, I suppose I must have to leave ten bucks every time you enter. Hahahaha! It came out so nice! Can't wait to see more!

Oo La la what a beautiful fixture! It looks stunning. What a good idea making such an impact in that space. I love the color of the fixture with your tile colors. What a good choice, it really makes that space elegant.

It's gorgeous Heidi! But honey obviously you misread all of us...we love pictures of redos. NEVER could you bore us, you sweet thing.

And you're right - the other light just got lost in the ceiling. This one is much better and definitely much prettier. In a girly sort of way, of course.

Heidi I am so happy for you that you are redoing your bathroom! Your chandelier is gorgeous, and one thing I love to do is hang a chandelier in the bathroom. We had them in our other house, and I can't wait to redo these bathrooms so I can hang them here. I am so excited to see more pictures! Please show them. You know it won't bore me one bit.

Exquisite chandelier Heidi - looks fabulous there and can't wait to see the rest of this bathroom makeover.

I tried to have a chandelier hung in one of my bathrooms a few years ago but the electrician refused as it would have been against code - could touch it from the tub/shower and be electrocuted!!! Instead I had him hang it in the potting shed - it gives a romantic look at night in the back garden!

Love your new lighting. Very romantic looking. I do agree the old one is just to small for your ceiling. Thanks for sharing.

Absolutely beautiful! I find the ceiling so interesting, too. The French chandelier was a great find and really makes the bathroom take on a grand appearance. I love the pictures and am so glad that you're taking the time to share with us.
