Our new chandelier

There was a wine store down the street from our apt in Chicago called Lush.  Lush had two of these amazing wine glass chandeliers above their bar/tasting area in the store.  I always commented on how cool they were, and B surprised me at our rehearsal dinner with one to be placed into our first home. 

After we moved in, this was the first project after the boxes were unpacked.  We knew we had the perfect spot the minute we looked at the house, and so all we had to do was figure out how to play safely with electricity :)  We'd never done a project like that before, so both of us were a little nervous.  We googled it, prayed a bit(seriously I thought he might get eletrocuted), and got to work.  We were able to do it without killing ourselves, and now it is such a cool statement piece in our kitchen.  The table it sits above will eventually be a wine cork table top, and it is going to be sooooo cool. 

The picture above is from the kitchen island looking into the family room.  The pic below is with the light on looking up towards the ceiling


  1. What a fun and unique piece.... love it!

  2. Oh, that is so neat and unique!!! Thanks for sharing a photo - it looks awesome!

  3. First of all, this chandelier is awesome. I'd never heard of Lush before so I googled it and turns out it's not too far away from my apartment! It caught TBF's eye and now we're going to go! Thanks :)

    Second, best comment ever on my last post. Unfortunately I don't have $300 lying around for this kind of merchandise, but (fingers crossed) I'm getting a raise soon so I know what the first "extra" part of my paycheck is going to be going to!! I'll be sure to get extra socks because they look super comfortable and they'll keep my tootsies warm ;)

  4. Very cool! But I don't think I'd hang a chandelier that low - I'm tall so I like them higher up so I don't bonk my head on them.

  5. So fun!!! I love interesting pieces like that, and what a great story behind it. The place is looking good! It's really coming together. Can't wait to see more!

  6. That is SO cool! I love it!!! The furniture is looking great too! :)
