A Long Awaited Installation

A little over a year ago I came across these beautiful brass chandeliers. They hung in the woman's grandmother's house since she could remember and, after her grandmother's passing, they moved into her house and thought them too old fashioned to live with. Well, another person's lack of taste is my gain!

I was thrilled to get both of these for less than $50~ You heard right! All the crystals in great condition, albeit very dirty, but with a labor of love, lots of soap, water and gentle sponging everything came out beautifully.
And then, it was up to my husband to hang them. A little over a year later, I don't know what possessed him, but he finally decided to hang them for me.

I am so thrilled with how they turned out. They have added such a wonderful touch to my master bath (yes, that is where they are) but they truly make the room so elegant and bright. They look better than I imagined and I am happy.
