You Light Up My Life!!!!!

This is a little chandelier I made for Margo's room! I saw something similar on Poshtots.com and couldn't believe how adorable it was........at a mere 1,700.00!!!!!!! Do people really pay that kind of price for things? Anyway, I decided to make one myself since it didn't look too hard! I found this cute little chandelier at Walmart for 50.00 and Carrie found the shades at Goodwill:D I bought the light pink spray but wasn't able to use it because the crystals are attached with jump rings and I am not good with jump rings.....smiling:) So, I simply got out my paints and handpainted it (it would have been prettier sprayed, but....oh well...) I had a hard time finding all the roses that I wanted ...so I improvised with a little fake babies breath inbetween and my trusty glue gun! I bought a cute piece of green fabric at the local quilt shop and made the sleeve for the middle......which by the way was nothing but an ugly tube:D So, ta da, here is the finished result and it can now be hung in my Margo's room at home! I think her mom will love it......
