On the search for lanterns...

via Pinterest

The above image is what I want the front entrance to look like...except I am going to go for a glossy black on the door...and I have been on the search for well-priced oversized lanterns like in the above and below images...

Country Living via Cottage & Vine


So I found this one...



Not the best picture and it really does not look as big as it actually is...but the lantern is around 35 inches in height and 13.5 inches in width...which gives me that oversized look.  

However,
I do not like the seeded glass (I prefer clear glass) and I love the mirrored back in the 1st image...so here is my plan:

1. Change out the seeded glass with clear glass at the local glass store.

2.  Change out the back glass with a mirror...at the same glass store.

We will see!!


...remember almost everything is 30% off in my little store at Gas Lamp...last day is today.  This week...the space will be re-painted as new items come in!


Happy Halloween!!

Caroline,
Adding oversized lanterns to the front of our house was transforming!! You will love those with the clear glass.

Great choice!!!

Yes, yes! I love this idea. I would never have noticed the mirror in the back of the lanterns in the first image. What an amazing idea to reflect more light.
