DIY - Chandelier Tutorial in Pictures

I gave this little ol' lady a new home and a new life. I hope you enjoy my chandelier renovation pictorial.

Sending a super huge THANKS and BLUG (that's my word for blog hug) to Roeshel at The DIY Showoff for letting me showcase LuLu's before and after shots over at her place.

Until next time...
