I've been stalking Craigslist for a couple months now looking for a crystal chandelier. I do a search in the morning while I drink my coffee. I might check in again midday and then at least one more time before I go to bed.
Last week one showed up. It had a bad picture and the description said something like, crystal chandelier. pretty good condition, missing one lightbulb.
When I went to pick it up the woman seemed shocked that I wanted it. I admit it didn't look very good, I don't think it had ever been cleaned. Needless to say, it was covered in dust and grime. It's marked made in Italy and has a nice aged look about it.
So I spent a little time cleaning it up.
It took the place of this DIY makeover chandelier I had in the sunroom.
Every sunroom/garden needs a little bling right?
What did I pay for this vintage crystal beauty you ask? $25!
Do you think it's too much?
