Modern Farmhouse Chandelier Swap

Love it? Share it!

Hi My Friends!

Today I wanted to update you on a little switch-er-ooo I made with my chandeliers! I bought a new modern farmhouse chandelier for my entryway. And wouldn’t ya know it? I liked it better in the dining room. I know. The hubby gave me the “I don’t like this plan but I love you so I’ll do it anyway” look. You know the look. He’s just so darn good at electrical wiring that I just had to keep his skills fresh. 😉

So what was supposed to be one wiring job turned into two! And I am so pleased that I did. I mean, that HE did. (All the props go to the hubby.) My new chandelier looks so lovely with my newly refinished dining room table, which you can read about in my tutorial here. I feel like it completes the modern farmhouse style I was going for. So let’s take a look, shall we?

Entryway Chandelier Before

Let me just start by saying there was nothing wrong with my previous chandelier. It was an old DIY project where I spray painted the previously brass metal a fresh pewter. But I was looking for more of a statement for the first thing my guests see when they walk in. (Sorry for the random photo. I forgot to take the before photo and just as Aaron was about to take it down I screamed like a mad woman, “WAIT!! I didn’t get the before!” Yes. Real life folks.

Updating My Entryway with a modern farmhouse chandelier.

Modern Farmhouse Entryway

And here is the AFTER my friends! This wood beaded chandelier was previously in my dining room. I still love it but am so glad I switched it to this space. It fits better and is more to scale here in my narrow entryway than it was in my large dining room.

What do you think? I think it really updates the space and feels more cohesive with the style I’m going for. And now for the encore! My brand new (previously slated for the entryway…thank you hubby) dining room chandelier!
