You get the horns, hung up. Last week, the UPS man delivered our West Elm Mobile chandelier. After living without an entry light for two months, it certainly is nice to see at night again. Right now we have six small round 25 watt globe lights, but I’d love bigger 15 or 20 watt bulbs.
Install was pretty easy, though poor Ben had to hold it while wiring because I couldn’t reach to help. While he had the ladder out, I asked him to hang the Longhorns.
Unfortunately, a stud wasn’t centered on the wall, so the horns are a few inches off to one side.
But, I’m still thrilled to have a light and decor in the entry.
I’ll be even more excited when we get around to other entry changes. Like sanding the ceiling and wall patch, installing paneling on the tall wall, and swapping out the front door and window.
See the tape on the window? We’re hoping to reuse the 8 foot tall glass door from the dining room with a transom style window above.
After researching doors, we really like the look and function of a double door with large windows. A few houses in our neighborhood have full glass double doors and we love them. With below freezing (and lately far below zero) temps, we can’t exactly start on this, but we’re itching to get there.
