The perfect chandelier


I've searched high and low for a chandelier for the second bathroom. See the plans for a recap of the shape I am after. Here I am to bore you with details of my hunt.

Problem #1 - I didn't know what to call the shape so it made searching for it difficult. I had to draw it for a few sales assistants because I couldn't describe it well.

Problem #2 - My budget is under $200. There was next to no chance of me finding an old fancy one for that money.

As luck would have it though I found the perfect chandelier in an old Freedom catalogue. I called my local store and it was reduced from $299 to $89. Bargain.

BUT...

Problem #3 - It was sold out in Sydney. There were two left... in Melbourne.

Problem #4 - Could I convince my husband of $89 + el-cheapo return flight to Melbourne without him divorcing me?

Turns out we have a friend who travels to Melbourne fortnightly and he's kindly offered to pick it up for me. Bless.

All this fuss for that chandelier. I'm so embarrassed.
