$70 Thrifted Wood Chandelier


Lighting is like the jewelry for your home. Interior lighting trends change so often it’s hard to know what is a passing fad, or what is considered truly timeless styling. I find myself changing our lighting in our home about every five years. Once we painted our kitchen cabinets and added new hardware, we knew it was a matter of time to choose a new light fixture in the dinette. I’m pretty sure the lights were the original from when the house was built 15 years ago.

I came across this $70 wood chandelier on Facebook Marketplace, and I knew I had to have it. This brings our total investment in the DIY kitchen remodel up to $230! Seems we’re going for a lighter, airier look which is sooo different than our previous home. Natural wood tones and organic fabrics make my heart sing.

The new chandelier leans more towards the modern-classic with a twist of “farmhouse” — but I love it. Notice our “dark and moody” mantel makeover I shared the other day? It doesn’t look so dark when surrounded by white walls. Without the dark paint it was a little lost over there.

Our subtle nod to the brass trend

I see lots of bold, brass fixtures these days. My subtle “nod to the trend” is antique brass. I mix it in using picture frames and I mix metals elsewhere. But not in my lighting. So organic, woodsy tones it is.

It looks a little lighter in this photo than it actually is…

And here’s a quick reminder of what the kitchen looked like when we moved in (August 2018).
