Chandelier Fashion Show

If you’ve been on JaG’s Facebook or Twitter pages lately, you know that I’m in the process of redoing my guest bedroom. A guest bedroom that involves a hideous ceiling fan. Mom, if you’re reading this, look away.

Okay. Is she gone? I’ve made it no secret that I hate ceiling fans. Before you attack me in the middle of the night, I understand that there are some environments that truly call for them. My guest bedroom is not one of them.

My mom, however, loves a good ceiling fan. We had one put in “her” room when we built, and I’ve mumbled swear words at it ever since. Ceiling fan, be gone!

If you haven’t checked out the fabulous selection of lighting over at Overstock, please do. You’ll be happy you did! I know you’re going in blind here, but I thought I’d show you my top selections for the guestroom. Wanna go on a tour of my favorites even though you have NO idea how I plan on decorating it? Makes sense, right?

Group A. The traditional chandy. Beautiful, sparkly, luscious.

1.  $124.99

2.  $157.99

Group B. A new favorite of mine. I love both of these, but I’d have to paint them. Not a big deal, really. I’d just rather not have to do it.

3.  $133.99

4.  $184.99

Group C. The classic drum shade. Tailored, sophisticated, and oh so feminine.

5.  $119.99

6.  $105.99

I’m going to be mean and reveal to you that I’ve already picked out my favorite and made it obnoxiously clear to my husband which one to order for my birthday(that’s how we work). I’d love to see what you have to say, though! What do you think? Got a favorite look/style for a bedroom redo?

I like 3, 4, and 5. But, I think 3 and 4 might be a headache to dust. So, 5!

farmhouse mama said...

Give me a five! FIVE!!!

Sandy said...

#5!!

Thelissa said...

I'm with these other ladies. I like the style of 5 and 6. They are beautiful.

Chrissie said...

#5 for sure~

Courtney {a thoughtful place} said...

"Mambo #5" baby!

Phil and Bri said...

I love #5!! But for our Master, I really love #3 because it is masculine and feminine. Can't wait to see what you picked!

Amy Kinser said...

Number 5 made my heart skip a little beat. There is so much about it that makes it great.

Momma said...

#5 for sure! LOVE it!!!

Heather said...

The last one! I love the drum shades! Classy and beautiful...

Bringing Pretty Back said...

This was the most perfect post for me to read tonight!!!! I have been looking at these Chandies for days at overstock and could NOT decide! I wan one over the dining room table and in our bedroom. Number 5 will be joining our family!
Have a pretty day!

Brittney said...

I'm loving 3 and 5! I can't wait to see which one you picked!

Life In The Thrifty Lane said...

Number 5!!!!!!

Kara said...

I think we ALL have the SAME taste...#5!!

Lizzie - Dancing Toad Photography said...

Number one is by far my favorite.

Lizzie - Dancing Toad Photography said...

Actually, number 3 is fantastic too. :)

Kristen said...

NUMBER FIVE!!! NUMBER FIVE!!!! If you have picked anything else then I just don't know you anymore. Sigh.

Stephanie said...

Love them all and Overstock! Been spending a lot of money there lately with my daughter's renovation. I go for 6...can't wait to hear.

#4 made my heart skip a beat! =)

I bought #1 for my daughter's room from Overstock and we love it - I also saw it at a local retailer last week for $250 so that made me happy! It does come unassembled and the directions they send for putting on all of the crystals are marginal at best. But I figured it out and it's really beautiful installed.

Melanie said...

I LOVE number 5! I want it for my guest room in my new house:) Lovely.

Wendy said...

#6 but I am a simple kind of girl!

A Jennuine Life said...

My faves are Group C - streamlined but elegant at the same time.

Windy said...

Absolutely #5 :)

ourthreesons said...

#3 but painted white, I love it!

Ashley Ann said...

No way could you pick anything other than #5!

Maura said...

Ooh, you should get #5, because I need number 3 for MY room!!!

See how it's kind of branch-y and nest-y looking? And how it goes with the bird art in my room? It is totally ME.

Cate said...

Number 5!!

Jen.Jensen said...

I like #s 1 and 5

Blessed Mama said...

I think the last group looks more like a dinning room not a bedroom. I love them very much but they just don't say bedroom to me.

Dream Mom said...

I am guessing you'll go with number 4 (don't remember your guest room though). I am with you on the ceiling fans-I don't care for them but there are some homes/rooms that really need them.

Thank you for posting this though because #1 is absolutely perfect for my kitchen; I am doing a cosmetic update and I wanted a chandelier and that one is just PERFECT! Thanks for doing the legwork for me!

P.S. I think that's a great policy for birthdays:)

Barb said...

Wow... These are so beautiful, it's so hard to pick. I love all of them but for your house I pick # 5. Love the Drum and glitter together! I agree about not liking the look of ceiling fans. Remember, with my remodeled bdroom, I did not put one up again. Your forgiven, I will just pack my own T U R B O blaster. You always say I pack more stuff than anyone you know. HE HE HE....

Love Ya, Mom

Please tell us which one you chose.

Megan said...

#5

Dilly said...

I say avoid Group B- it's going to look soooooo dated in about three years, you'll be dying to get rid of it. The other two groups are classy and timeless. Group B is a fad.

the medeiros family said...

I actually have the #4 chandelier and I painted it black. I love it! The little crystal flowers are easily removed for painting. I have pictures if you'd like to see...just let me know. Good luck!

Christy Wheeler said...

I LOVE LOVE LOVE number 5! That is amazing! After that would be number 6

Kelly said...

I really like #1 in Group A, and #5 in Group C.

Haley said...

#5 Would you link to it at Overstock. I couldn't find it there. It would be fab in our hallway!

I am Irene said...

Those are amazing. It's a terrible shame we have such low ceilings. *sigh*

Katie said...

# 5!!! but in second place would be #1.

Beth@The Stories of A to Z said...

While your hubs is ordering, tell him to buy me #5--the first drum shade chandy for $120. That is my fav! Now you need to reveal yours!

Beth@The Stories of A to Z said...

Oh my goodness, I just glanced at your other comments and these ladies have impeccable taste. And...I'm feeling like Overstock might run out of #5's here soon!

Laurie Jones said...

Love a chandelier or any pretty lighting, which means I'm totally on your side, boo to ceiling fans, one that I happen to have in my bedroom that my husband has forbid me to remove! I'm loving the last 2 chandeliers you posted, little traditional, a little rock and roll!!

Anonymous said...

Drum shade for sure...so elegant and sophisticated for a bedroom environment. I swear it's the one you picked just by looking at pictures of the rest of your house, I think this is most your style!

Melissa :) said...

Ah, this is a no brainer! Number 5!! And thanks, 'cause now I want one too. LOL :)

Kat said...

I'm kind of surprised (because I'm not really a bling kind of girl), but I really like #5.

Ann said...

Number for the win!!!

I love it.

Dream Mom said...

Yikes-I got the number messed up and typed 4 instead of 5; didn't realize it until today when I saw your selection, which is the one I thought you'd pick!
