Oh, I love it when I find something amazing that I wasn't quite looking for. I was surfing Etsy the other night and came across this lovely old antique brass light fixture. With shipping from the US, it's costing me $80.
It needs a complete overhaul and possibly new glass but I am so excited to see if this fixture is as pretty as it looks. I don't think the Etsy photos do it justice, but I have faith that it will clean up well (it was found stored in a garage for years). There is a great lighting restoration shop in Calgary, called Glazier Electric and I am looking forward to working with them on rehabilitating this fixture.
Don't you love a find? And although I have been scouring the net for interesting light fixtures for half the rooms in my house this was an accidental find. I love it when serendipity intervenes...I just hope it makes the trip from Houston!
