Thrifty Treasures: Chandelier

Photobucket

This beauty came from a local thrift shop....I could kick myself because we removed one JUST like this from our old house and donated it...shoot.

I scratched it up with sandpaper, sprayed a bit of primer on it, then spray painted it!

Photobucket

It's all finished and hanging above the table in the schoolroom! I'll be posting pics of that and my most recent chair re-do soon.

For TONS more perusing of others' thrifty treasures head on over to

Rhoda's at Southern Hospitatlity!

stopping time


I find myself rocking my baby longer and longer each night. And I really don't mind still getting up in the middle of the night to nurse him........

Psalm 144:4
Man is like a breath; his days are like a fleeting shadow
