We are working on the craft room but it's a process! The crown molding is up and the flooring will go in this weekend if the weather cooperates. In the meantime, I wanted to share the light fixture that's going in there. A few weeks ago, I saw this at Class and Trash:
It's the kind that has glass arms! It was taken out of a home in Northern Virginia during demolition. It needed a good cleaning, new wiring, a little paint, and new crystals. Dan and I got busy and took it apart:
It made me a little anxious to take it all apart. Look at all those glass pieces!
Plus, all the hardware pieces:
My part was easy--cleaning and painting--but Dan took on the task of rewiring it. He showed me how it's done. Yeah, I'll need a few more classes before I'll feel comfortable doing it on my own ;) Here it is now:
The champagne-colored crystals came from Shabby Elegant Designs. I kept the vintage prisms and will use them either on another project or as ornaments on my Christmas tree. I love the look of blue opaline also and gave those a try:
Also gorgeous! But when I painted the room --Bravo Blue by Sherwin Williams--the blue just blended into the walls. Based on the other color/design choices for the room made the champagne crystals my next choice. Once I saw the on the chandelier, there just wasn't any other choice! (sneak peak alert! :)
I'm linking up!
