I freakin' hate Pottery Barn. It's like the JCrew of interior design. Ridiculously overpriced.
My girl Stephanie over at You Paid More Than Me posted this chandelier the other day
The Chalet Chandelier from Pottery Barn Teen. Price? $199.
Granted, it is on sale for $49.99, but to me, that looks like those builder-grade lights with a coat or two of spray paint. You know, those "fancy" chandeliers you had in your first apartment:
This is where my DIY maven-ness kicks in to high gear. I found one on Craigslist for $20. Add that with a $4.00 can of spray paint and say hello to my friend Half-The-Cost and his sister No-Shipping.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it, Pottery Barn.
If anyone in my local area is dying for this, let me know. I'll do the grunt work, you pay for the supplies.
Always & Forever,
