I wish this was a post about my makeover with Stacey London and Clinton Kelly on TLC's What Not to Wear. I love that show and I have a girl-crush on Stacey London but that is a post for another day.
This is about my Christmas present. Last fall, I got a great deal on a chandelier for Sammie's room. Then I realized the shades were not included. Suffice it to say that once I paid for the 9 silk shades and sashes, the chandelier was no longer a good deal. It cost so much that I panicked and did what any girl would have done in my situation. I immediately called Sam and told him I purchased my Christmas present. (Forget the fact that he had already bought me something else--that was his mistake and my good fortune.)
I finally convinced Sam and his dad to hang it this weekend. I have to admit, I had very little faith in the two of them. I begged Sam to call a professional. I was convinced that one or both of them would get electrocuted in the process. But they came through. My father-in-law is awesome and very handy. It turned out even better than I imagined. Behold the transformation:
Before (the tired track lighting):
Way better right?
