Junk Haulin a Chandy
I love beautiful lush crystal chandeliers and I was dying to have one in my dining room to give it that Shabby Romantic feel. Well, you know me, I grabbed a $5 brass chandy at a garage sale and went to work! (The guy at the garage sale LAUGHED at me and said I could not spray brass..HA!)
I spray painted the brass with a pretty antique white, added some dangly crystals and wa lah. 
Ok, this is not quite like the ones I drool over....but it made my day and my budget!

This is the style of fixture I had in my dining room before...not a bad light but not drool worthy.

This is a similar picture of the brass chandy before (i forgot to take a pic, but you get the idea)

If you can dream it you can do it! I also created this darling little rosebud kissing ball during Christmas and just decided to leave it up!

 This is my humble little junky chandy... $5 plus paint, crystals I traded for and .50 cents for all the shades. I think it would be even prettier with some beaded strands and beautiful shabby embellished shades that match...don't you think...
