Okay, so I was surfing eBay today. I would say for the shop, but in truth I was looking for ruffle-y, cottage-y, floral-y sheets for my master bedroom. Which I found in abundance. Just not in my price range.
But while I was searching, I found this pretty, white chandelier, on auction for $185 for a $699 fixture. Again, love it, but again, not in my price range. So, I thought to myself, “Self, why don’t you hit the local ReStore and see if they have something that would work?”
And guess what? They did! I got the chandelier in the photo above for $20! It’s not really hung up yet, I just had a friend take a picture while I held it up there, so you could see what it’s going to look like.
It needs work. I’m going to have to rewire it, then paint/antique it, then add the crystals and shades. I’ve got some things on hand and some things I’ll have to purchase, but I think I can bring the project in for a fraction of a new chandelier.
Plus, it’ll be fun!
I’ll keep you posted,
