I think nothing makes a home more cozy than lighting. Next to candles, floor lamps and hanging lights/chandeliers are my favorite. This wrought iron floor lamp(hiding behind the rocker) was my Great Grandmothers. Originally it was black, then I got a hold of it and painted it white...now I wish I had left it black.
I've been keeping an eye out for a vintage chandelier that needs some TLC, that I can completely re-do. These are amazing! I"m not sure which is my favorite, but I'd love to end up with some kind of pastel eclectic mix of each of these.

I bought this about six years ago at The Land of Nod, I'm surprised to see that they're still selling it! It was originally hung in my daughters room when I was putting together her nursery.
You can't see this hanging lamp very well, but I love the way the glass beads reflect off the wall.
I found a tutorial on how to paint a Chandelier over at Karla's Cottage Blog. I'm sure it'll be helpful once I get my hands on a Chandelier~ Thanks Karla!
