THE Statement Piece of Our Home- By Morgan’s Wood

image1

A few months back I saw a chandelier online and I fell in love. But, I definitely didn’t fall in love with the price tag. In fact, it made me feel a little ill because I liked it so much. Don’t you hate it when that happens!?

I decided not to let that stop me, though. Instead, I took to Craigslist and put out an ad in search of a welder. I received tons of responses, but none that I felt 100% comfortable with until I received a response from Morgan of Morgan’s Wood. He and his son run a woodworking and welding shop near the Spokane area and were ready and willing to take on my project of re-creating my dream chandelier.

And in no time, we were creating! Being that this chandelier was being custom made, I was able to choose the size to fit my space. With super tall ceilings, I wanted it to be big enough to fill that space while not being overpowering, either.

I did my best to estimate the size of our ceiling fan as a starting point and then tried making my own ring on our floor to give me a visual. image5

I also needed to decide on the height and angle of the bars that attach from the ring to the mount, and luckily I have a patient husband who is willing to hold pieces of yarn while I made these decisions!

Working with Morgan’s Wood while creating this chandelier was nothing short of amazing. Morgan sent me photos along the way and we worked together in coming up with the design. And when I didn’t understand how something worked, he sent me hand-drawn sketches to explain it. Truly, a dream to work with!

And when ready, Morgan delivered it to my house!

Luckily, I have a handy husband who has a handy friend, and together they installed this thing. Surprisingly, it isn’t much heavier than our ceiling fan.

And the end result…

Perfection. I am SO incredibly happy with this chandelier. It fills our space perfectly and is truly a show-stopper. One of the best parts? It didn’t cost nearly what it does online.

We bought LED bulbs and put them on a dimmer so that we can enjoy all types of lighting depending on the day.  This is how I like it early morning and in the evening.

Or turned up all the way and the room becomes super bright.
