A few weeks ago my husband and I visited a local Habitat for Humanity Restore. ReStore is an environmentally and socially responsible way to keep good, reusable materials out of the waste system while providing funding for the Habitat for Humanity mission of providing affordable housing to families who are committed and able to become homeowners, so it’s a win-win situation. I thought it might be a good place to find a light for the dining room.
A New (to me) Chandelier
The store had everything including construction materials, cabinets, plumbing, flooring, appliances, furniture and plenty of lighting. Many of the chandeliers were brand new overstock pieces from a local retailer.
Everything was in good condition and priced to sell. There were so many beautiful lights that I actually had trouble picking one, but I finally settled on the one below.
I had the idea that I would be spray painting a brass chandelier black, but this one didn’t need any work and it was only $15.00.
It’s replacing the heavy fan that was hanging over the table and it makes a big difference in the room. The room feels bigger.
The dining room is really starting to come together.
