This just in

I just got an email from Ruth at The Beautiful Life...She wants me to share with you what I had shared with her...
After I finished the constuction of my new Chandelier...I had to give it a new finish to tie the new pieces to the French bottle Rack. You know that everything was the same...

Since this will hang over my new workbench in the studio(being constucted in the 'big house")...
All the metal finishes in this room are going to be zinc or galvanized...

So...I galvanized this new Chandy!

I found a way to closely duplicate this finish while
 working on some lighting fixtures this summer...

Once the Holiday Open House is behind me... Probably sometime in January...

I will share the "How to's" with you...

It's not that hard...

just REALLY messy!

Yes...I can make others that can be for sale...After the Open house.
Thank you so much to everyone for your wonderful suggestions and creative ideas...If I had the time I'm sure I would create each of them...


  1. Donna, you amaze me, so I'm betting that you WILL create and do each of the suggestions!! :)
