I'm always on the lookout for things I can upcycle and use to decorate my home. Last fall I found a 1970s wood and antique brass chandelier at the dump. It was missing the screws and glass shades but I liked the overall look of it so I dragged it home for my guest bedroom.
A few coats of white spray paint breathed new life into this light fixture. Of course I was so excited to see it painted I forgot the obligatory before shot. Sigh. It looked a little like this one (see below) only the wood is oak and was a lighter stain colour.
