New Chandy Bling & Spring

A few weeks back The Hubster and I installed our new yard sale chandy. I really liked it but I was not quite in love with it in our space. To me it was missing something. Something that would make it flow better with our decor.
I researched chandy bling and ordered some. I was afraid that they would not look as beautiful in person as they were in the listing picture. You can pretty much make anything look amazing in pictures with the right editing!;) To my surprise though they were even more beautiful. They are made from glass and not plastic so they have extra sparkle. I got 12ft for just $24.50 with free shipping. A pretty good deal I think.

The first thing I did was to swag the crystals around the entire chandy.
After adding swags around the chandy I decided to add a crystal to each tassel to ensure that it all tied together. I wanted the new bling to look original to the chandy. To help ensure this I made sure to order crystals that had the same silver loop as what was already on the chandy. 

After all the bling was added I decided to add some gold accent by highlighting the candelabra holders as well as the leaf detail with some Rub N Buff. 
Now the beautiful chandy is even more beautiful and ties in perfectly with our space.
And because I could not take pics of the new chandy bling without sharing the first signs of spring in our home here are the spring touches I added to the dining room.

I made this bunny centerpiece last year and instead of coming up with something new I decided to use it again.
We did not have the hutch this time last year so I enjoyed decorating it for spring.
My favorite bunny bowls I purchased from HomeGoods back in the fall.

I decided to show y'all the side of the dining room you never really see but it is the first thing you see when you walk in our front door. I love my federal mirror collection even if it is small. 
I am now saving up for new dining chairs. I want to put the ones on the ends back in the office. I am thinking maybe some wing back chairs with slipcovers and then two frenchy oval back chairs for the side by the hutch.

Thanx for stopping by and I hope your week was a good one!

  21. Is there a trick to picking out good quality silk flowers/topiaries? Is there a certain material/texture that I should look for?

    1. Hi Melanie! I try to stay away from ones look like shiny plastic as far as topiaries go. As for the flowers just go with with your gut instinct. If you think they look real then I say go for it. I tend to purchase mine from either HobbyLobby or HomeGoods.
