Refurbished Thriftstore Finds
The hanging light in my kitchen is in a weird place. The light hangs in the middle of the room and not actually over where the table is. So when I bought the house, I've had it in my head to look for a hanging chandelier with a long chain so that I can install a hook and have it hang in the proper place. It took some time, but my patience paid off. This lovely looking light is a thrift store find that was a weird (ugly) light brown color. Using some metallic rusted bronze spray paint, some soap and water to clean the grossness off, it has a lovely new life in my kitchen.
It wasn't even that difficult to change the fixture myself. Ground wire to ground wire, white to white and black to black. Buy a hook set from Home Depot and wa-lah.
