Has it really been almost two months since I found an awesome Lucite chandelier at an estate sale and debated if it would work in my dining room?  Yes, yes it has.  Darn you, Time!  You come and go so quickly!

Well, here it is!  We did it!  We found an electrician (not an easy feat) and had it installed.  And I LOVE IT!  Thank you to all of you who encouraged me!

And here it is illuminated.  (And notice that fabulous Kerry Steele painting in the background?  I LOVE that, too!  Especially with the new chandelier!)

Dining Room Lucite Chandelier Illuminated

Okay, wait for it.  Because I’m me, and can’t let sleeping dogs lie… do you think it’s too low?  We hung it at the same level of our previous chandelier, which was fine.  But I’m debating on this.  The bottom of it hangs 31″ above the table, which my Pinterest search said was correct:

And, Nancy from Powell Brower at Home, I referenced your dining room advice, too!  (Full of lot’s of great tips for having the perfect dining room!).

But… I’m still not sure.  Part of me thinks that it could go about two inches higher, but is it worth the trouble?  My husband says it’s perfect where it is.  Hmmm.  (Is that his inner designer speaking?  Or his inner husband-who-wants-this-project-finished speaking?).

What do you think?

    Kristen, It is lovely. Perfection. The height is perfect and I am loving the lucite and the wonderful painting by Kerry Steele. I have a couple of her smaller watercolors in my family room. Her works just make the space all the more special, don’t they? Happy Easter to you and yours!

    I love it! It looks wonderful, I love the look of the entire room.
    The height is always a personal preference. I moved into a home that had a gorgeous crystal chandelier hanging over the dining room table. It was much too low for my taste. When standing it hit me at eye level and blocked the view of the person standing on the other side. We removed some links and had it raised. Not an easy task , we had to remove all the crystals, remove links in the chain, shorten the electrical wires…I love it now. Your chandelier is lovely!
