Remember this boring shiny brass chandelier I bought? Well, after painting it black, removing the globes, I have a new to me chandelier, perfect for my old house. I love it! Total cost: $19.59 ($15.00 for light, $4.59 for paint and finish) How I love a bargain that looks good.
Here's another finished item. I've had this old copper lamp for awhile, but couldn't find a shade to fit or complement it. Angie found this reproduction shade at a church bazaar in the spring. I think they complement each other nicely. And you can't tell its plastic unless you inspect it closely. I'm happy with it!
I'm glad to have a couple of projects completed. I've made a list of things I want to accomplish inside this winter. I'm currently working on the kitchen and a new bed.
