Best Find To Date!

I wish I could say I found this chandelier! My mother-in-law and father in-law bought this chandelier at a yard sale in the Palm Springs area. It is definitely one of the best gifts I have received! It came with many of its original tear drop crystals, a green plastic bead garland, duct tape and plenty of dust! It works, too!
This is the same chandelier painted white and fully dressed in it's original bling. I added only a few crystals that were missing, removed the duct tape and plastic beads. It now hangs in my home office which replaced a ceiling fan. My husband reluctantly agreed to replace the fan, but he knows how much I love chandeliers! When the summer heat returns I may miss the fan. For now, I am enjoying my yard sale chandelier!

That is beautiful! I've thought about painting my garage sale crystal chandelier white but I'm afraid to. I don't know why because I paint everything else white!

That is so funny... I did the same thing... turned my breakfast nook into a girly office... and hung a chandelier to replace the celling fan... to the protest of my husband. I panted mine white also but I added tea cups and a teapot. You office is really cute..I love the printer cover... very nice

Wow, you did a beautiful job! It's stunning. My husband wants a fan in the master bedroom and I of course want the chandelier. I have them everywhere else so I don't know if I'll win. LOL!
