Lantern Lighting

I have been searching for a new light fixture for above our kitchen table and have been drawn to these lantern styles.

I love the color of this one and the Japanese style.

The shape of this one in Tobi Fairley's dining room is just what I had in mind.

Joni Webb used a really simple one in this gorgeous family room.

Then I saw this one at Aesthetic Oiseau and I knew it was the perfect one for me.........

It came from CSN Stores and is the Living Well Rubbed Bronze Lantern.   I love it and it was only $ 104.99 with free shipping !  We put it together and hung it in about an hour.





Here is the light we had before:

 Much better !  What do you think ?

I think that qualifies for Metamorphosis Monday.
