Chrome in the Rough









During one of my weekly trips to the thrift store I came across this pretty hideous light fixture.  It made me wonder who actually had this hung in their house and what the house was made of cause it was heavy!

  My hubby happened to be with me and I had him come look at it.  Of course he just rolled his eyes and said "ok" whatever you think.  He thought I was crazy to even think it had potential, as did all the people standing in line with us who were giving me very weird looks. But I saw the chrome parts of it and new she could be a beauty!  

So $8.95, yes that's right, $8.95 later and we took her home.  I think it was one heck of a buy and it looks perfect in our dining room.  Just goes to show you that with a little imagination and a handy hubby, a not attractive light fixture came become "Chrome in the Rough".
