Hello loves, happy Saturday. I know I said I would be sharing about this gorgeous chandelier I scored on Craigslist last night but I didn’t end up getting home till late so I figured I would feature this little beauty today. I love sharing these finds because I know there are a lot of you guys out there that love home decor but are on a budget like myself. And when we first bought our house back in May things were even tighter, considering we had just used every dollar we had ever saved for a down payment. But typical me was determined to renovate this entire home within the first two months. Which meant that we had to get creative and DIY our life away or get larger pieces for free. Luckily I had already started collecting when we lived in our apartment so I had known that free Craiglist existed and I have fully used it to my advantage since. Not only did I find this amazing antique chandelier but I also scored my coffee table, outdoor table and antique buffet as well!! Just add some chalk paint, distress it and wallah! You have the perfect piece to add some character to your home. When we first moved in this house honestly looked like a lodge (but not in a cute rustic way). Everything including the flooring and cabinets were light pine, the walls were a weird yellow color and this lighting fixture was the worst of all. It had cutouts of pine trees and moose all over it, and it had to go. So after many nights scrolling through Craigslist this antique chandelier popped up and I instantly fell in love. It was originally wood with brass accents but I spray painted the entire thing black and called it a day. I think its the perfect addition to our farmhouse dining room and the best part is that it cost me NOTHING. That’s why I’m so excited to share my love for renovating old pieces in my home decorating business. I cannot wait to add some stunning accents to your home and help transform any room on a budget. Enjoy.
