Today’s “Decorating on a Dime” series continues with some pretty awesome Flea Market finds, yard sale finds and side of the road deals from Flea Market Fanatic, Lisa La Valle-Finan Etsy Shop Owner of Old World Living.
I love chandeliers, don’t you? There’s only one wrinkle, not everyone can afford one. Take a look at this wooden number from Restoration Hardware. It’s a whopping $995! And as we all know that’s an average price for chandeliers. Plus, not everyone knows how to install it! Let’s say you a young professional renting in Manhattan (I remember what that was like), the Super is not going to be happy about you changing the lighting fixtures or redecorating, but why should that stop you from glamming up your “first place?” I think my creation is the answer, and I hope you will too.
It’s not a candelabra because I fashion the chandelier to hang like a real chandelier. And each Standallier is unique because I hand pick the chandelier and the base to match (custom orders welcome)! This one has a real vintage brass base paired with a charming wood chandelier, both from the 40’s. Each one comes with brand new wiring and switches, all you have to do is plug it in and say, “oooh, how lovely!”
I make them in three sizes or styles:
- Standallier™ – The size of your average floor or reading lamp $250
- Lampalllier™ – Suitable as a table lamp $50
- Candallier™ – Non-electric floor or reading lamp size $150
