Mimi Sue's Cottage

A home is much more than a house built of lumber, brick, or stone. A home is made of love, sacrifice, and respect. We are responsible for the homes we build. We must build wisely, for eternity is not a short voyage. There will be calm and wind, sunlight and shadows, joy and sorrow. But if we really try, our home can be a bit of heaven here on earth.

Vintage Chandelier Makeover

 
 
I've been looking for a vintage chandelier for our #2 daughter's dining room for several years.
 
I've found a few but they're either too expensive or in really bad shape. 
 
Last weekend I finally found one that looked promising.
 
I was pretty sure we could clean it up and
get it working. We've had a couple of rainy, muddy days so we couldn't do
much of anything in the yard.  Perfect weather for a little inside-the-house project.
 
 
 




I hope that in a few days it will look like the one hanging in our entry.






I'll show you when it's done.

Mimi Sue: What a pretty chandy. I'm sure you will get it looking just like yours. I love chandys but don't have one with all the crystals..Happy Thursday..Judy

I can't WAIT to see how it turns out! Might just drive past your home and look in your windows when the sun goes down. By the way, the first picture looks a lot like a pile of snakes in the thumbnail. Just thought you should know. ;)
