The photo doesn't do it justice, but it's the best I could do. The chandelier itself is about a foot and a half in diameter. It's made to hold candles and I had considered hanging it over the breakfast table. Instead, it now sits upon the breakfast table, complete with mismatched candles and a little cement bird. I sat up late last night with the candles lit, sipping tea at the table, and enjoying the warmth four little candles can give.
It just goes to show that what you need to feel at home may not be out there waiting for you to find or buy or grab; it may be in a box, in a storage room, covered in dust and waiting to be uncovered and given new life!
Go on, comb through those attics and basements and closets. See what YOU can find to breathe new life into an old breakfast table!
