Rescuing a Treasure

I just finished reading my sisters latest post about her new chandelier on Painting The Roses White. It has reminded me of my own lighting update! Last year, my Dad and his wife decided to hire a decorator to help with the finishing touches of their new home. One of the first things that the decorator decided didn't go with the decor was a beautiful chandelier over their dining room table. When my Step Mom Leah told me she didn't have a spot for it, my ears immediately perked up! She was kind enough to give it to me for free. I decided to put it in my bedroom; the original lighting was pretty standard.

I bought a medallion from Home Depot and my handy (electrician) boyfriend installed it for me. So here it is in all its beauty!

not only is it beautiful but FREE!?!?! um, is it selfish of me to want to know what the bedroom must look like with such a lovely chandelier? :)
