Am I fickle or what? I bought my Montgolfier Hot Air Balloon chandelier because I thought it was the most awesome chandelier ever known to mankind!
Of course, I found it on Craigslist.
Alas! It really does not work in the area I placed it! You see, I originally wanted it for Gracie's play room but the ceilings are eight feet tall and the chandelier is four feet tall.
I wish I could find a spot for it. Just looking at it makes me happy!
I hung it in the Breakfast Room. However, it doesn't complement the grisaille panels I am installing in the adjacent secretary. Well, if I ever finish that particular project!
Along came Craigslist and all my problems are solved!
Enter the Manoir Chandelier from Canopy Designs!
Here it is in its original habitat:
People actually live like this!
When I googled the address before I went to pick this up on Craigslist I saw the real estate listing. This home is in Chicago's Lincoln Park area. It had a price tag of $3,000,000. Yessir. Three million dollars. American currency.
As I was driving to pick up the chandelier I did the math in my head. This gentleman could buy a substantial number of homes in my neighborhood and still have money left over!
I digress...as usual.
I am waiting for the electrician to come and hang this!
I will post a photo the very second he does!
