Lanterns are hot, hot, hot right now and I’ve got lantern fever! Pottery Barn has some gorgeous lanterns….
I’ve also seen some beautiful lanterns on blogs…such as this one! Traci at Beneath My Heart turned a $3.00 brass light into this Pottery Barn look-alike!
I tried to get as lucky as Traci and find a light similar to hers to transform but no luck. So I finally bit the bullet and ordered one from CSN stores. I ordered the Mossoro Outdoor Hanging Lantern with the idea of hanging it over my kitchen table but it was really too small for that so it ended up in the foyer.
We previously had a small chandy hanging in the foyer. I had a medallion I used on the ceiling with the chandy that I had sprayed black. When husband hung the new lantern he left the medallion up so I had to prime and paint it the color of the ceiling…..really wish that medallion wasn’t up there but I’m not about to ask husband to take it down! So for now it stays.
Have you added a lantern in your home? Don’t you love them?
I’ll leave you with some pictures I took last night when the sun was setting. You just can’t beat Mother Nature!
My Bradford Pear tree is starting to bloom!
I’m hoping to get a project or two started this weekend. What are your plans?
