My "New" Chandelier...

I haven't been getting much work done yet...lots and lots of ideas and sketches...but no actual jewelry design/creation. My work space seems to have some bad mojination so I'm hoping I can bribe my hubby to help fix that this weekend.

Anyway...what I have been doing is working on a few projects around the house. The living/dining room are now all the same color (finally) and almost all the baseboards on the first floor are painted. Necessary stuff but boring for the artistic mind (and most people who have been to our home would never ever be able to tell that I spent days doing all of that).

My "new" chandelier on the other hand came out fabulous and very certainly looks different. Of course however, I neglected to take a before picture so you could really see its transformation. The best I can do is to say that when we bought the house it looked something like this:



What I wanted was this $400 piece from Pottery Barn (but was definitely not willing to shell out for it):



What came from that inspiration is this:




Obviously not as detailed as the one I wanted but I think it captures the spirit...and for only $15 in spray paint and crystals...spirit and sore fingers are much, much more affordable!
