Fabulous Antique Finds

I was in desperate need for a glamorous chandelier to add to our living room re-vamp. I say desperate because the current light fixture/ceiling fan is so atrocious.. I can’t even handle it! So this past Sunday Lizzie and I headed out to the Alameda Point Antiques Faire

and…… look what I found!!

Are you kidding me?!?!??! Ahhh I can’t take the gorgeousness. It’s too good!

I’m pretty much obsessed.. This is exactly what I was looking for. I think it will add the perfect amount of glamour to the living room.¬†Unfortunately for me, my husband is not really the handy man type.. so my little bro has offered to try and help install my stunning chandi! I’ll be sure to take photos when its all done!

In case you were wondering, I scored this chandelier for $70!!! It was originally marked for $100 and I talked him down to $70. I was pretty happy, since chandeliers this size normally go for $300-$400

I also bought that black and white trellis pillow for $25! Down insert included! A pillow like this on Etsy could easily sell for $65 +

Next I came across this gorgeous re-covered antique chair painted in black lacquer .. pretty sexy

Goes perfectly in my home office & it was only $40!

I found this rustic metal basket perfect for our firewood too

Overall it was an incredibly successful trip! Lizzie found some really cool stuff too. Check that out here.
