The light is too long!
Yes that is exactly what happened when we hung the new light in the hall of the apartment, that we are currently working like crazy to get finished.
Mr FF finally got my fabulous lantern up only to find that it hung quite low and there was a high probability of a guest knocking themselves out or even worse, smashing the light :-).
Mon dieu! Could this day get any worse I wondered?
After a hard day of hand sanding the very old floorboards in the lounge/dining area this was not what I needed to hear.
Then I remembered that amongst the hundreds of boxes on the ground floor, was a fabulous antique chandelier that I had bought with the intention of selling it in the shop.
I suggested that we move the exisiting light from the bedroom which I thought was a little plain, put this in the hall and hang my antique chandelier in the bedroom.
An hour or so later, the reason that this took longer than expected, was due to the fact that the chandelier is crystal and very heavy so Mr FF thought that he should take precautions to ensure that it did not fall down as there would be a lot of tears if this was to happen.
Result? The bedroom looks fabulous with its new chandelier and I am now hunting for another to sell in the shop....
