I bought this chandelier for $10 at the ReStore a few months ago, hoping to do something for my daughters room with it.
My plan for using it in my daughter's room didn't work out - but I held onto it knowing some use for it would come up. As the holidays are approaching it came to me - a crystal garland.
The crystals were very easy to remove from the fixture.
But they were filthy.
So they got a bath.
And then I simply attached them end to end, alternating so that the big crystals joined to the bigs and the little to the little.
And while I liked them draped on the light fixture in my dining room, I knew it was meant to be on our mantle. (Forgive my fall decorations, I haven't turned everything over yet - i just couldn't resist taking and sharing these pictures.)
I'll be sure to post an update when I get the holiday stuff up.
