Vintage find…how to make it work in today’s rooms

While exploring a local reclaim store we ( actually my husband!) found this antiqued chandelier in the basement hung up in the rafters. I instantly fell in love with the look (and the price…just $56). The electrical has been inspected and after about another $50 worth of work and a mounting bracket that needs to be installed we will have the perfect lighting in a room…not sure where yet!


Upon exploring ideas to update and soften the chandelier I stumbled upon little shades that you can purchase from Pottery barn. At less then $40 for 3 I can have pretty much a brand new fixture for under $200 with character you just cannot buy new!
