So a couple months ago I had a VERY good day at goodwill. The only time I like to go to goodwill is when I’m in Mesa, and when it’s 50% off Saturday. Usually by the time I get there, everything is picked over. However this day I found a this chandelier and 2 shutters for less then 10 bucks because it was all half off! SCORE! The chandelier was broken, dirty, and quite ugly…however I knew witha few coats of spray paint and gems it would glam it right up!
I also found this window a few weeks before at the D.I. I have it all taped ready to be spray painted.
I spray painted the window blue and and the shutters white.
Well here they are just looking quite pretty in my bathroom…
Now onto the chandelier…
So originally I was planning on buying crystals, but when I found out the price I decided to go for something cheap. My mother-in law had some garland (found in the HL Christmas section for about 3 bucks) left over that I decided to use. I didn’t even use a whole pack. Of course REAL crystal would have looked better, I think it looks great! I couldn’t imagine spending 50 bucks on crystals when I only spent 4 dollars on the chandelier in the first place. I did however by the gems that are hanging down from HL, which I think ended up costing me $10. I just ripped off the tops and hot glued them to the strands of beads.
Oh btw the chandelier does not work. It is strictly decoration… I mean c’mon for 4 dollars could you really expect it to work?
