Well, I thought I'd have more to show for my progress report on my breakfast area make-up ( not really a make over, just adding "cosmetics"!)
I did get the new chandelier hung today with help from Bethany and my husband. I can often change out fixtures myself, but this one required extra hands, and patience. The wires would not thread into the tubes easily but kept getting hung up on bumps inside the tubes...very frustrating.
|out with the old...|
The shade had to be attached to the links of pipe as it was assembled which was tricky!
|.....in with the new|
The bad news is, the shade got "crimped" in the process, and is very noticeable.
I'll contact the manufacturer for a replacement, but Im also thinking of covering the shade in the meantime..we'll see! Here is the damaged shade.
Does anyone have a solution to getting out "crimps" in the plastic of a shade??? HELP!!
