Another Thrift Store Light Fixture

  I have been admiring this chandelier from

 It costs $140; not terrible, but $3 sounds a lot better right?!

I thought so! So when I came across this light fixture below at our local Deseret Industries for $3 and thought it resembled it, I was ecstatic!  Worth the risk at that price!  I brought it home, cleaned it up, removed the glass, and tested it to see if it worked.

Originally, I was going to spray paint it oil rubbed bronze like the Overstock one above.  However, I ended up liking the brassy finish on it and decided to leave it as it was.

I LOVE it, it really adds ambiance to the space...and for $3 YOU CAN'T BEAT THAT!

The color of it works great with your linens. I bet it would be really cool with a dinner switch. That duvet cover looks like the Vanessa floral print from Pottery Barn. It's really pretty too.

Thanks Seth! It is the Vanessa floral print from PB! (good eye ;) mom told me she just got it for her AZ house. I love all the colors in it.

Great find! I am not a big fan of shiny brass, but I love the golden color of your light :)
