I crossed the first item off the decorating to-do list. No, we didn’t install crown molding in the dining room yet. I skipped right to number six and added a ceiling medallion to the entryway.
Here is that the entry light looked like before:
Just plain. I have been wanting to replace the light in our entry for some time. Once or twice I almost purchased IKEA’s Stockholm chandelier, but my indecision got the best of me and I have been holding out. I am still loving my striped green archway.
Here is what it looks like now:
I first tried to source the medallion from a home salvage shop in Fort Worth, but they only medallions they had in stock were very large and incredibly heavy. The one I ended up with took about $35 from my wallet and 30 minutes of my husband’s and my time.
It makes the light seem much more substantial and gives our small entryway more of a presence.
Have you made any quick, easy, inexpensive updates to your home lately?
