I love the ideas I get from This Young House. A while back, they posted about this great capiz-shell chandelier from West Elm. That was all it took. I, too, had seen and admired this very chandelier quite some time ago. But I never did anything about it. And I had since seen a very similar fixture at World Market. When I saw their post, I decided the time had come.

I was right in the middle of doing a little rearranging in my guest room anyway, so I marched myself over to World Market, and for close to the price of the West Elm piece, I picked up my chandelier (and no shipping…yay!).

My husband had to get a little creative to hang it, but I was pleased with the results.
