Woo Hoo, I am having a great weekend! I found
this chandelier at the fleamarket yesterday! I saw
one months ago and wanted to buy it, but DH didn't
like it, so I didn't get it. He didn't see the potential I
saw, he just saw "brass"...... Anyway, I showed him
Lisa's at "Prims from Above" so he could see what it
would like painted, so then he liked it. I didn't know
it when I bought it that it is by "Ethan Allen" made
of solid brass in Spain..... Boy is it heavy!....I only paid
.........Are ya ready????..............................
.............$20 for it!!! That included the dust!
It also has fancy cream colored shades that I
forgot about, so they aren't in the picture......
I was thinking of painting it a gray/pewter color,
then brushing black on it here and there to "antique"
it some......What do you all think? If I don't like that,
I can always paint it black. Anyone else have any
ideas? They had a simple one in Home Depot, that I
almost bought, but I thought it was too modern looking
for what I wanted, so I am glad I held out to find
something else. This guy had another one that was
bigger, that would have been used in a house with
cathedral ceilings....I don't know how much he wanted
for that one (I didn't ask), since it was too big, anyway.....
Well, I have too many things to do, so my make over
will have to wait a week.....
I forgot that I got an old basket full of large pinecones
to sit by the fireplace, so I will have to take a picture
of that and post it next time for you all to see....
Thanks for stopping by and hope you all are having a
