Answer=Everywhere! As long as I can remember, I’ve loved crystal chandeliers! I think if I try hard, I can find a place for one in every room and closet. Which is why they come in different sizes, right?
I have several large crystal chandeliers, my favorite being in my kitchen. A close second is the one in my dining room which I bought at a consignment store for $100 if you can believe it. But I love petite crystal chandeliers too! I have a vintage brass and crystal chandelier in our powder room. I take it from house to house because I love it so. It came from an antique store for $40. It only holds one light bulb which is on a dimmer. I love its shape and sparkle of crystals and old brass.
This sweet chandelier is at the lake house. (aka Happy Hill) I bought it on eBay years ago when we were renovating the house. I think it looks perfect in the little greenhouse window. The purple tear drop crystals are very unique and make a nice contrast with the green walls and white cabinets. I don’t know why but I really love this strange window over the sink.
This pink chandelier hangs in my closet. I don’t think it is very old even though I bought it at an antique store. I think it will look precious hanging above my grand daughter’s crib! (when I have a grand daughter) Meanwhile it adds nice sparkle to my closet. Another “not consigned” item in this house.
I have a petite black chandelier in our laundry room from Ballard Designs. It replaced the builder grade flush mount fixture which is a huge improvement! This one is sweet but I don’t love it as much as some of the others, so this one can stay when we move.
This small chandelier is in the boy’s shared bathroom. It has a little bit of bling without being too fancy or girly. I bought this one from Lowe’s a few years ago. It gives off quite a bit of light too!
This one hangs in the master bathroom at the lake. It was another eBay find.
This is one of my all time favorites. Probably because one of my favorite friends gave it to me. I had it rewired and put on a switch. It’s tiny but beautiful! It is currently missing a few crystals, but it still looks great!
Each time we go to sell our house, the realtors always tells us not to strip the house of the character, i.e. light fixtures. But not everyone has my same taste so they may not like my chandeliers anyway, right? I can’t think of anything more tragic than selling my crystal chandeliers with the house and then someone tossing them out and replacing them with something else! (I’ve heard that happened recently.) So, I will switch out my favorites with acceptable replacements and we will all be happy! You can find your own crystal treasures at so many places. Advice? If you find one for a great price snap it up! I promise you’ll find a place for it eventually! (Some of mine are still in a holding pattern in the treasure room!) Hope you have a wonderful day! Thanks so much for stopping by. Lacey and I appreciate it!
