I wasn't looking for this one, but when I saw it for $3 at my favorite thrift store, I figured it was worth taking home and I could worry later about where to place it. I couldn't distinguish the metal. Whatever it was, it was old and rusty. Nothing a fresh coat of spray paint couldn't fix. Next, I added crystal accents that I had on my chandelier two homes ago. I finished the look with a tassle (also left over from my old home's decor) and taper candles from a box that I already had. $3.00 ended up doing a lot for our newest piece of furniture!
