Yep - a roadside find. I didn't purposely go rummaging for a chandelier but it caught my eye and I had to stop to have a closer look. I actually picked up two dusty chandeliers. They were not quite the shape I was looking for but hey, I'm not complaining! Each chandelier was missing crystals but I figured I could combine the best of the two to make one complete chandelier. And that's exactly what I did.
One of the two dusty chandeliers.
I gave the newly built chandelier a good clean and it now sparkles. My friend installed it for me last night (thank goodness it works!) and yeah - I'm pretty happy with it.
Total project cost: $0
(thanks to my lovely friend)
While I'm on the topic (and I hope you don't find it icky), have you found something either by the roadside or something someone wanted to get rid of and you've now brought into your home and given it a new life? I'd love to hear about it. Also, thank you for all your comments and emails this week. It has been so nice to hear from you. Have a happy weekend!
