Basic Apartment Updates-Part 2

Most of the fixtures in our home are straight from the 80s, singing Eye of the Tiger and wearing MC Hammer pants. Although, the 80s produced great rock-out in the car classics, they did not produce fixtures that are pleasing to the eye. Enter our brass and frosted glass chandelier. I just scrolled through my iPhoto and don't even have any pictures (accidental, I think not).

Anyways, Marty decided he wanted to replace it last weekend with a more current shade and assured me that this would be an easy job to accomplish. My Grandma Z gave us a Pottery Barn gift card for Christmas, and this seemed the perfect opportunity to put that to good use. We found a great shade with a blue and green floral print, a perfect match to the rest of the blue and green decor in our living space. And even better it was on sale. Yippe! So we paid nothing and got a great new look above our dining area. Thanks Grandma!
