The $15 dollar chandelier.

This weekend I went to yard sales with one of my friends.   When we got to one sale I saw this chandelier and knew it would work perfectly in my parents lodge style house they are redoing.   So I bought it and thought if they can’t use it well then it was only $15 anyways. It just needs to be cleaned up a little.


So I took a picture of it and sent it to flickr from my phone then called my mom at work to tell her to get on there to look at it and call me back to tell me if she likes it.


When she called me back she said that was the exact same chandelier that she bought brand new at Lowe’s for her house. She paid $150+ for it new. Well now she has two!


Some before and afters.

I recently made a trip to Hobby Lobby and found these decorative items on clearance.  Originally the big ones were $29.99 which I got them for $3.00 and the small one was originally $14.99 and I got it for $1.90.  Sorry my pictures aren’t that great they are from my Blackberry because I still can’t find my digital camera!
Here is the before:

Scary stuff! This pretty much sums up my last month.  Nothing but bad luck!  On the bright side my insurance will cover it all but my deductible and my car wasn’t totaled.
