Believe it or not I found this beauty in rusty condition at a yard sale for a whopping ten dollars, a little white spray paint and bulbs of course strands of crystals and prisms help create this working delight...side note, always use a professional electrician when working with older pieces...

My husband is a builder/remodeler, & last year, he completely remodeled an entire get-away home for a couple who simply told him about many things in the home, including light fixtures, "Just get rid of it!" Well, there were several light fixtures with crystals. Needless to say, I went NUTS! I painted one glossy black, & re-hung the crystals...so striking! I'd never seen crystals like them before. They had the old "carnival glaze" on them, making them have a rainbow-type effect. The other "chandlier" was porcelain, with gold-painted trim on each piece. There were also porcelain roses that dangled from each arm of the fixture! I added crystals, hanging from pink satin ribbon, & tied brown tulle bows to the top as well, & hung it in my girls' room. So cute, I could just eat it! Lol. Posted: 4:55 pm on July 25th
