I’ll admit I have a thing for chandeliers, especially antique ones. I love finding them at flea markets and seeing their possibilities. The best bargains are the ones covered in covered in dust and dirt and in need of rewiring. Rewiring can be an expensive and can put the overall cost of even the best bargain way over budget. It was also not something I considered a diy project…until this year when I found this on Ebay.
The rewiring was not as difficult as I thought, and of course the painting was easy. I love the way looks in my kitchen, very old and French and curvy.
The other chandelier is this one.
I wrote about it in this post, French Curves.
