Backyard Update: Gorgeous New Outdoor Chandeliers

As I’m sure some of you know, my backyard has been in the midst of a remodel for almost the entire past year. We spent last summer remodeling the pool, and then most of the fall finishing the landscaping. And though I haven’t revealed the entire project yet, today I’m sharing one of the newest additions – my new outdoor chandeliers!

As you can see in my Backyard Design Plan post, one of the things I really wanted to add were some romantic outdoor chandeliers. Previously, I had two lanterns out here. And though they were fine, they weren’t really appropriate for the look of the new yard.

I had been looking for quite awhile and I wasn’t sure I was going to find the right ones, when I lucked upon these gorgeous European inspired chandeliers! I’m so excited to have found them, and they add so much to our outdoor space!

We decided to get two so that we could have them over both the dining and lounge areas. This is especially nice since we previously had no light in this area and now it’s so nice to sit out here at night!

Having one on each end of the patio really ties the whole space together.

I love the white washed wood, and the metal leaves. They add just the right amount of charm! (Unfortunately, this chandelier is no longer available, but I’ve linked some similar options below!)

And at night, with all the candles lit, they add such a romantic feel! Just what I was going for!

Right now I’ve been using real candles, but I’m going to get some flameless candles. I think it will be much safer overall, and it will prevent any wax from dripping on the tables. And I found flameless tapers at Pottery Barn – I’d never seen them before!

I’m loving the vintage feel they’ve added to our outdoor space, and I’m finally starting to feel like the yard is almost done!


I know I’ve been sharing some pieces of the backyard so far, with the landscape reveal last week and now today’s outdoor chandeliers. And we finally revealed the whole pool area reveal and all the details of the renovation in one big post!

My outdoor chandeliers are sadly no longer available. If you’re looking to create a similar vibe, I think this might be a situation where FB Marketplace, Craig’s List and garage sales are your friend! 😉

With a lot of people adding electrical fixtures to their outdoor spaces, many candle lanterns are available used. I’ve also found a few similar options on Etsy that I’m sharing below!
