I am a HUGE FAN of vintage lighting. I think its such a better way to go. It may take a little more effort - but the results are unreal!! The quality is insane and so much more special. You may need to re-wire and do a bit of cleaning - But, so worth it.
Ebay... Etsy... Craigslist have so many great options - its crazy!!
Here are a few things from my home, as well as a few things I've found along the way.
Do you have any vintage lighting pieces in your home?
|This swag chandelier hangs in my bedroom. I got it at a junk shop in Crenshaw -- the owner of the shop had no idea how cool it was and was giving it away for $30. It took 2 days to clean all the dust - but it's so Jere. I just love it!|
