I only have one drawer in my place and oddly there is nothing in it.  But I've had this chandelier lurking around on the floor for over a year.

So, I stripped it, painted it, cleaned the crystals that came with it, rewired it and covered it in wire, crystals and beads.

The final result:

That is beautiful. But, I don't think it is conforming to the guidelines.  Sad

This is absolutely stunning!!

Unfortunately, it doesn't quite meet the guidelines for Craft Challenge #73, as it's not from a drawer, so I'm going to move it to the Housewares board.  Thanks for posting!

This is so sad because it would have had my vote in a heart beat. I'm still going to pin it. And I do believe 'this ROCKS'.



ETA, why can't I pin this? Sad
