Did you see the ceiling medallion on the floor in the shot below? Why was it not on the ceiling you wonder? Because the crew only used glue and didn't screw in to secure it to the ceiling, so gravity did its job and the medallion plunged to its death.
At the end I decided not to install the ceiling medallion. I always wanted ceiling medallions but it turned out I actually liked the clean smooth ceiling better. It's probably not meant to be anyways. Their boss came back the next day to finish the job - it was impeccable, smooth as a baby's bottom.
So here's the before.
And this is the after with the new Paris Flea Market Chandelier in burnished brass finish.
These seeded glass beads lend just the right amount of sparkle to the light. It's glamour with restraint.
Now I can move on to tackle the other two things on my 2016 project list: switching up the coffee table and the draperies. I am eyeing this gold leaf square mirrored number on Wayfair. What do you think?
