THE THRIFTING ADVENTURE THAT EARNED ME THE TITLE "QUEEN OF THRIFT" (self acclaimed) :)

Two years ago when were preparing to build our new home, I set out on a mission to find GOOD,cheap light fixtures. Since I live with my electrician, I knew that I could get them installed without a fee :) I'm still blown away at what I found! The photos say it all!.....well.....almost. We did have to do a little refurbishing & repairing. I think you will agree that this was a successful mission!

Got a question about this project?

    Did you find all of these at thrift stores?

    I did, Steve. Click on the photos to see what I paid for them. "Dirt Cheap"! I researched the Miranda Feiss (first two photos), and found one very similar to the 6 arm chandelier. The retail price on it was over $800.00.

      @Martha B Thank you! I used metallic bronze as the base color (spray paint), and then dry brushed highlights using 14K antique gold. I don't recall where I purchased the gold. I had it a long time. I think it is available where artist supplies are

    Not only did you save money, but you've added character to each room that no one else will be able to duplicate.
