$10 Chandelier Makeover
I had posted weeks back about this brass chandelier that I picked up while antiquing with my mom at this local church flea market. I scored it for $10! The vendor said she wasn't sure if it worked. For $10 it was worth the risk. It sad neglected for a while until I painted it. I primed it first then just painted it white with some left over paint from a couple weeks ago when we painted the house. It sat neglected again...until...My wonderful husband hung it for me yesterday! Yay! And it works! Double Yay! I wrapped some satin ribbon in a champagne color around the link chain. My mom gave me these turquoise beads she picked up while antiquing in Mount Dora. I tried to swag them around the fixture. Think I need to play with them a bit. She is going back to Mount Dora this weekend..Have to get me some more of these beauties. Who am I kidding ? I have a list for her.
Here are some other random pics of what I've been working on....Easter is coming and I have a lonnnggg list of projects before then...(K honey? are you listening Mitch?) :)
That's all for today. I have a busy weekend planned that includes the beach (sorry to my northern blogging friends) and family visiting. So, I won't be back until next week! Have a wonderful weekend all!
