Splurge vs. Steal:

Bonjour!! I feel so guilty that I've left my “followers” hanging for several weeks waiting to see our completed house. Btw, Paul and I are LOVING the new house and enjoying making it a HOME.

Well, I'm still working on the final touches so it will be another week before official photos go up. :) It's def worth the wait so please be patient! I had an idea to give you a few teasers of the house in the mean time. Here it goes!

Remember a few months back when I was researching light fixtures? Well, I have a successful Splurge vs. Steal to share with you.

Who doesn’t love French décor? A. I am obsessed with Chandeliers! B. I wanted one in every room in the new house. C. I did get one in the dining, living, eat in area of the kitchen, master bath and the secondary bathroom. There are many different styles to choose from these days so do your homework! I was determined to find what I was looking for at a discounted price. Therefore, many hours of research on the computer, magazine flipping and driving around town = STEAL!

First, decide on the style you’ll be incorporating into YOUR home, then worry about size and color. BEWARE…there’s some great stuff out there.

I just LOVE the mixture of iron and wood! Have you visited your REVAMPED, local Restoration Hardware!? If not, GO!

Thanks for letting me chit chat…Now, on to the important stuff!

Splurge: French Country Chandelier


Steal: French Country Chandelier (At Home)


Splurge: Wine Barrel Chandelier


Steal: Wine Barrel Chandelier (At Home)


Total Savings = $3317
Horray for SAVINGS! :)

Hey!! Both lights came from At Home in Homewood AL but I've seen similar ones at restoration hardware recently among others. Where are you located?
