One of my best and favorite on line purchases was my vintage chandelier. The funny thing is I am not normally in my décor a "vintage" style. Yet the style and grace of a crystal chandelier had caught my attention. And I searched and I searched and I bid and I lost and I bed again. Alas, at long, long last I had the vintage crystal chandelier of my dreams.
I proudly hung it in my modern vaulted dining room. It blended in a truly eclectic manner. So very uncharacteristic of me and yet others who favored modern always remarked how much they adored my Internet find.
The Ultimate Compliment on My Vintage Crystal Chandelier
Strangely enough, the ultimate compliment came from my realtor who normally is very tactful. She was a beautiful lady who I believe only did real estate for fun. Everything she did was the extreme - from her Mercedes SUV to her 12 acre estate and so on. You get the picture. While we working out the listing price sitting underneath my Internet find, when it came to the pieces not being included in the sale of the home, of course, first and foremost on my list was this chandelier that I had worked so hard for and was so very strongly attached to. She looked up and stated "I don't like crystal chandeliers but I do like that ONE!"! Wow!
New Life in a Vintage Home
Ironically or perhaps because of that special chandelier, the next chapter of my life went from a 1 acre modern ranch to a beautiful brick vintage 2 story charmer. The home has 44 windows and was built by a prominent jeweler. The interior reminds me of a jewelry box, the wood work is amazing. The story goes a single lady one owner before us, had stripped all the white paint herself through the home. The woodwork literally gleams with joy from that release and capture of the modern white paint.

A Couple of Thoughts From My Chandelier Escapade

- Do compare with local stores
- Learn the prices and set your budget and stick to the budget
- Do bid and allow the pieces over your budget to go to another home
- Do check out the sellers. If they are brand new - beware - this is a big purchase for most of us.
- Do double check about broken missing pieces before bidding.
- Do know the number of lights and color you prefer.
- Measure, measure, measure!
- Do learn the price of replacing or adding that particular crystal to your chandelier.
- Do allow plenty of time for safely unpacking - it is a daunting task but well rewarding.

Home Improvement = Imagination = Personality
The personality of your crystal chandelier is only thwarted by your imaginations. The possibilities are even brought today with color being introduced vibrantly - from red crystals to blue to amber, gold - the color of the crystals are endless.
Change the Colors to Match the Season
I have a friend who years ago would change out the colors depending upon the holiday. It was a subtle change of simple a few added pendants.
Nowadays, the choices are even broader for personality - they include colored bases and arms. Do your research, see what you love, design your own crystal chandelier and you will delight in its glow for decades to come. Most of all, have fun with your remodeling project, enjoy the journey!
I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it's a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, and that enables you to laugh at life's realities.— Theodor Geisel
