A fun home makeover with some crazy lighting fixtures

Guest post written by Cynthia Newton
The other weekend I was sick, so I actually had to be stuck in the house and that made me realize that my home was not reflective of my personal tastes. Then of course I started planning all of these different things that I wanted to do with my place. Instead, I decided to make a few changes to really modernize my lighting fixtures. After lots of thinking, I pinpointed them as being really old fashioned in comparison to the rest of my stuff.
I have this really old fashioned looking ceiling fan above my dining room table, so I thought that might be a good starting point. My online search for some modern lighting fixtures led me to some info on sears vinyl windows. Once I started thinking about it, I realized that my windows were also badly in need of an update, so I think that I'm going to get them replaced.
This lighting idea that I found that I'm going to try and recreate myself is a twig chandelier. It's modern, but not way too space-y looking. People always think that's what modern means, but that isn't necessarily true.
