My Antique Chandelier


I love all three of my ‘chandys’, but this petite one is my favorite
because it’s actually old and the original brass connecting wire is tarnished black.

I paid over $300 for it at an antique store in New Paltz, NY about five years ago
when I had a lot more disposable income than I do now.
The owners said they bought it in South America,
and were disappointed when I said I was going to paint it white
because "the Shabby Chic craze is over, isn't it?".

Never for me!

Until next time, stay shabby!
