The Chandi Ceiling Fan is up!

BYE...BYE... Old ceiling fan

Remember this photo from my previous post?





With the ceiling fan removed
and the wall and pan ceiling painted....


It's time to put the moldings up.

After finishing this project, I can understand why it would have been so expensive for a carpenter to do the project.  My handy man husband can do about any household project, but he was not crazy about mitering wood trim on the ceiling. 

Well...after a few "Pretty Please" he agreed to it!


He is a perfectionist.
The most difficult thing was to make sure all the molding were square.  It took about a week for all of us to be home at the same time.  My husband, two sons and myself  each had to hold up one side of the molding at the same time. 

That was not a Kodak moment!
  Every one's arms were getting tiered
 and the complaining was in full swing.

Are you wondering what the blue tape is all about?

 My husband had to mark where all the studs were
 so he could nail in the molding.


I added a ceiling medalion that I painted the same color as the moldings.  The color was one shade lighter than the ceiling. 
 After painting it I added a stain to it. 
 I'll share that with you in an up coming post.


 Are you ready to see the new chandelier ceiling fan?



Gotta have some bling with a chandelier.
Lets add the crystals....


 Here it is....



I love the way the light looks through the shades...





There's lots of crystals....



For now I'm going to enjoy my new ceiling fan
while I lay right here on the bed!


Later this week I'll share with you
the continued master bedroom makeover.

I'll be linking up to the following....

While it may not have been a Kodak moment, I must say that the crown molding added the perfect touch for this very classy looking fan.

Jeff did a great job on that molding. I think the fan, lights and medallion are beautiful. I'm looking forward to seeing it all put together.

That looks gorgeous! I love what you did. I know a lot of designers say get rid of the ceiling fan, but in AZ they are a must! I love how pretty yours is. Hmmm....may be time to replace mine...

Beautiful job! Love the fan. I would prefer a chandy in my bedroom too, but in the summer, a fan is a must. This is a great solution! Can I ask you what your toile fabric you bought for this room is called? It is just what I'm looking for, but haven't had any luck finding it. Thanks!

That ceiling fan is just plain gorgeous. I love those shiny things that look like diamonds. They add a touch of elegance to it. Nice work, by the way! It may not seem like it, but that kind of work isn't easy. Good job!
