my bedroom chandelier...you either love it or you hate it...


I brought this home years and years ago from a tiny, dusty little shop in Idaho.
I wish I had a before picture. It was moldy, didn't light, had broken holders (where the light bulb goes in...not sure what they are called...) and was just in horrible shape.
and I let it sit in my basement for years and years before my friend Mike came along.




Mike restores lamps. So I asked him if he would like a "challenge"...

Isn't he the best? I just love this chandelier...it hangs in a corner of my bedroom...
but you do have to love cherubs to love it...
and I do.
I am off to STARS for day 3 of the sale. the last day for bargains...
hope to see some of you there!

Hi Melanie,
You can put me in the LOVE category. I refer to my decor as "early French whorehouse" so this chandelier is right up my alley! Hope things are going well for you at Stars.
