Over a Labor day weekend, I had painted the entire fixture white and had left it that way for a long time. I was never sure what I was going to do with it. After all, I had other projects I was working on. I proceeded to paint the kitchen garnet red. This color made the white chandelier stand out even more. It was very pretty indeed. Just too simple & plain for me.
I went home and obsessed over owning that chandelier. I think I even lost a little sleep at night...hahaha. Until one day, an idea came to me. The light bulb did not only go off, it exploded. I decided I didn't want to have the same exact chandelier, being that it was Dorothy's awesome centerpiece. (She actually didn't mind & had offered to get one for me.) However, I needed to come up with something of my own.
To this day, I just love this chandelier. I created this, along with my son who was 6 years old at the time. We would come home every night and work on it together. It took us an entire month to complete. Yet, it was so worth it and so much fun to make.
So, thank you Miss Dorothy, for your impeccable taste & bringing that inspiration chandelier into our lives.
