Past Due Tuesday Post

Ok, I am going to admit I cheated. I didn't plan anything for the big post today and I wanted to post something, anything for the Past Due Tuesday and I took a picture of a chandelier that's hanging in my stairwell. It's not vintage (but it looks like it!!!!!) I got it for FREE from my friend Neal (typical scavenger that I am I noticed it amongst stuff and said" hey whatcha doin' with that?"). He was only too happy to have me take it off his hands. I forgot to mention, it was all gold and 80's ish and I saw the potential immediately. So I PAINSTAKINGLY took off all the crystals and spray painted it a yummy cream and SHA-ZAM!!! VINTAGE. It looks so good I just had to keep it (could have tried to sell it at Room). So whilst I am posting a non-vintage item for this post the important thing to remember is, who cares as long as it LOOKS like vintage???!!!!


  1. Wowza! I love that chandelier. That Neal sounds like a keeper! Does he need any more friends that like "junk", cuz I'm available!?!?!?!?

  2. What a gorgeous chandelier! So lacey and sweet. If art imitates life, then repro's must imitate vintage, so as long as it's a feast for the eyes, it's ALL GOOD! Thanks for sharing in PAST DUE TUESDAY!
