Lighting Questions, Be Honest
OK, going for a cottage, but not cutsey cottage, look. More of an eclectic vintage cottage look - a little rustic, a little traditional.
Anyway, I've been enchanted by the restoration hardware fixtures that look like candles, but at 2K plus, way way out of my price range. I'd been thinking of trying to make one, but then someone showed me this one from Lowes that I like really well.
I was all set to save my pennies for it, but then tonight this one popped up on craigslist. I think I like it better BUT I am not sure if it will fit the room.
It's a dining room and I'm looking for one for over the table. It'll almost certainly be a rectangular table, large enough to seat 6 or 8. The furniture will be traditional or provencial, depending on what I find, and will likely be painted since there's not much in my price range that has a savable finish.
So, think painted dining set, and tell me which shape light would look better. I really like the bar one (the CL one) but am wondering if it's too plain.
