I was browsing CL Sunday afternoon and came across a listing for a Chandelier.
There was no picture, and the description left a lot to be desired.
Has glass or crystal-$20.
It was close by, so I took a quick look at it and offered the guy $15.
When I got it home, I took it out of the box and saw it was really dirty. Years of dust dirty. The box made a quick trip to the trash after I looked through all the old paper for loose crystals.
There weren't many pieces of crystal, but there was a boatload of dead crickets!
I took all the crystals off and cleaned, and cleaned...
Who knew it could take so much time to clean!
This was a lot of fun to see what a little elbow grease could accomplish.
Not too shabby!
She now resides in the Dining Room.
