Lake House Chandelier Installed

Back in January, I bought a chandelier on Royal Street in New Orleans. It was a late nineteenth century wrought iron piece that was perfect for the entryway of the lake house. It took me awhile to finally hang it, which I did this weekend. Because the ceiling in the entryway is angled and covered with wood trim, it wasn’t straightforward to wire a traditional light box. Instead, I simply screwed in a hook and hung the chandelier from it, and then connected the wires to a plug which could be plugged into a switch activated outlet that was conveniently place at the top of the wall next to the ceiling. The end result looks great!
