A few weeks later, however, someone wrote to me privately and said, "Hey, are you still looking for a chandelier? I have one, but it is not in the greatest shape." I thought, "What the heck, I'll go ahead and look if the price is right as I can always use the crystals on something else."
It took a ton of elbow grease, but this sweety cleaned up so NICE! I didn't think about where I would hang the chandelier when I bought it, because I honestly thought it would be parted out. The longer I cleaned, however, the more I knew it just had to go over our bed. We've had an ug-o ceiling fan there since we moved in, and although I knew Edward would think a chandelier over our bed would be a bit "ostentatious", as he likes to say, I knew he didn't like that fan either.
