redo of a black iron and wood chandelier...

About 14 years ago, I had this chandelier made. It had a wooden center with black iron arms...no shades.....a few years back, I was about to order a new chandelier to go with my cottage decor. I loved the lines of this one though....so I hung it from a tree and spray painted it, rubbed on some antiquing glaze, added some shades and...tada!!!....this past Christmas I bought the crystals from Target for $1 each in the ornament section....
LOVE this now....it is perfect in our dining room.....and I spent almost nothing...yay!!!...
