Updating old chandeliers ian somerhalder ashley greene dating 2016
First, always ask whether a fixture has been rewired.Sometimes sellers note this in the product description, but if that’s not the case, call or email the seller to find out.I also started working on this colonial brass chandelier that has been hanging in my foyer for the last 15 years.
It was time…time for a DIY Brass chandelier makeover that would not be easy and budget friendly.Quite some time ago I was browsing the Ballard Designs catalog and noticed these magnetic crystal chains that could be used to embellish an existing light fixture. I have also seen boxes of loose crystals from old chandeliers at the antique fair and have thought about how I might be able to use those, but I’ve never found enough matching crystals and never any that could be used for the base chains.Then while browsing Michaels, I figured out a way to move my chandelier from Italy to France on a budget!We purchased the Rodeo Collection Round Twelve Light Chandelier from Lamps Plus almost 10 years ago.
I have always loved the size and the details of this light fixture, particularly the faux drip candles.I found the shades a few years later at a yard sale.
