Yes!!! I really did pick up this chandelier for FREE! It was in a box wrapped in tissue by the side of the road. I'm a lucky girl! It's antique and I saw one VERY similar to this one, going for $299.00!!!!!
So my friend came over last night and hung it for me over my bed. I absolutely love it in my room. It picks up all the accents in my lamps and throw pillow. What do you think?
I almost slept on the couch last night, thinking maybe I should see how it holds up through the night! :P That thing was heee-eeeeaa--vvyyy! Still need to put bulbs in it...but just for looks...will not be wiring anything while hubby is away. I could just see the headlines on post newspaper "Army wife of deployed soldier burns down house trying to install chandelier in her master bedroom!" HA!
I don't think the pictures do it justice. I wish I felt like painting my bedroom, but since we're only going to be year another year, what's the point, I'd have to paint it back again! UGH!! No thanks.
The two thingy's on each side of the photograph I framed are candle sconces, but I'm not too sure I like them there or not....What do you think? I'm at loss as to what else to put there...unless I put a HUGE scrolly iron thingy behind my bed. hmmmm? My bloggy pal Audra actually found one on the side of the road...how do you like that...some people are just born lucky! :P
My dear soldier called today and picked up a GORGEOUS rug with red and turquoise in it for me!!!! Isn't he a sweetie!!! I can't wait to see it. He's gotta figure out how to ship it.
You should definitely visit here in about two weeks...I should have some pree-ttyyy exciting news to share!
Talk to you later~ Army Wife
