My Love Affair with Chandeliers!

Ok, so I have a bit of an obsession with Chandeliers. I have several in my house, and LOVE them. They add so much drama to a room and give that extra detail.  Light fixtures are an important aspect of a room, dated light fixtures will date a room no matter how modern your furniture and accessories might be.  You don't have to spend a fortune on light fixtures.  Going into high end light fixture stores can be a bit overwhelming and is an easy way to blow your renovation budget.  Most of my chandeliers are from home hardware stores, like Home Depot or Rona.  I spray painted both of my Home Depot chandeliers, as they were a dark brown, rustic colour, and I wanted a more dramatic and classy look.  I spray painted one chandelier white and the other black before preforming the labour intensive job of putting the glass crytals on the chandeliers (this takes hours as they usually do not come assembled).  None of my chandeliers are crystal but they do have glass pendents, which still look classy.  I tried a plastic chandelier but it just looked too cheap. I like the glass pendents because they still look expensive.
