i. love. shopping. my. house.

you see...i have a problem not always being content with my decorations.

why can't i just like the way something is placed and leave it there for a long amount of time? i have always suffered from this. i remember when i was a little girl my side of the room always changed {i shared a room with my sister}. i was forever moving stuff around! then, i got married and i still did it... 10 years later i think my husband is used to it. {i remember he would walk into our apartment after work and say "am i in the wrong home?" haha! he never knew what our home would look like}

well, i have to admit... i did it again.

i went to a garage sale last fall and found this lovely chandelier that i could NOT pass up. it was b.e.a.u.t.i.f.u.l AND only $35. {i will post about it later}. i knew i could find a home for it quickly! as soon as i got it home i took it into the dining room and it fit perfect.

now i had to find a place for the old chandelier...

it sat in our garage for months...



waiting to get a new home...

i wanted my husband to hang the old chandelier in our bathroom but it took awhile {my adorable husband is not a handyman. God gave him other talents.}

well... it finally got hung after a little makeover :) i love reading lindsey's {the pleated poppy} blog. she just redid an old chandelier {here} that turned out amazing! when i saw that i thought of my chandelier and i knew it would be perfect.

the transformation:

thanks lindsey for inspiring me!

i love how the twine gives the chandelier an old-worn feel.

i have not decided how i'm going to add crystals to the chandelier. ANY SUGGESTIONS?? IDEAS?

now my bathroom is complete.
