Dressing it Up

3.08.2012

I shared my master bath chandy's transformation with you the other day. Well, right after I had changed that one I decided to update the one in the sitting room too by changing the candle sleeves. It is such an easy change.

This is the before shot at Christmas in 2010. This was right after Mr. Savvy had hung it up. If you look closely you can see the dark metal candle sleeves.

I  removed the metal ones and also removed the shades and am using them somewhere else that I will share another time. Here you can see the new candle sleeves that look more like real candles with wax dripping.

Here is a closer look. I ordered the gold color for this one so it would have more of an old world feel to them in this room.



Excuse the aluminum foil laying in the chair. I took them off the back of the sofa to take pictures and dummy me set them in the chair and there they are. Oops. I use foil to keep Bailey off the back cushions of this sofa. I don't want them permanently indented.

You can purchase these candle sleeves on line at Lumiere Candles. Their company is actually located only a couple of hours from me in the north Ga. mountains. They can also do custom sizes.

Have a super day. It will be 75 and sunny here today. Woo hoo!

  1. I like the change, Kim. Those sleeves are great.

    A new chandy to replace the ceiling fan in the hearth room is on my to-do list this Spring. It's been on the list awhile. Maybe it will happen in 2012.

  3. I have the candle sleeves too and they make such a nice difference in the quality of my light fixture. I, too, love this room of yours and I sure understand why Bailey wants to sleep in there!

  4. oh-Thanks for the link, Kim. I do need to replace some old white ones and I only found them in a couple of sizes and none that would work. I will have to measure my own and get them ordered. Yours look great-nice mini redo! xo Diana

  8. So pretty! I know ceiling fans aren't the prettiest, but that's what alive got! I'd like to change them out but hate the though of losing the extra air circulation. One of these days...! The aluminum foil is a great tip too!

    The only drawback is getting the wattage, but they could not be more charming and beautiful!! I think they would take this chandy to the next level!

  12. Lovely room. Funny, I use the foil on the ledge outside my kitchen window to keep Charlie the cat away from the screen. It's not a pretty sight, but it does the job. I'm sure most people wonder why the foil is there. ha,ha.

  18. What a difference removing the shades and adding lighter candles sleeves make!! Are your new candle sleeves wax? I have been thinking about ordering some for my chandys....

  19. I like the chandy both ways, but I prefer with no shade. Sure does give it a whole now look. Perfect for your room:)

  21. Those sleeves are lovely, Kim! It really makes such a difference. And so does removing (or adding) the little shades! I added silk shades to a crystal chandelier in my dining room and it really toned down the "Let them eat cake!" style and made it more homey.

  32. The candle sleeves add a nice touch to the chandelier in your cozy room.

    We had to put a magnetic curtain rod across the door screen to keep our dog from jumping up and tearing the screen. Whatever works!

  38. Such a lovely room. Your chandy looks great and I love how you have the little blue table in place of the coffee table. I have a table like that too and would have never thought to put it there.
