As you probably know by now, I have a major obsession with ALL things faux bamboo. I was
hoping my boyfriend wouldn't pick up on my little addiction, but after telling him about my
most recent acquisition he asked if I now have enough "bamboo stuff". Nope!
One of the faux bamboo pieces I've been lusting after is a tole chandelier. I fell in love with this
one on eBay a few weeks ago, but chickened out at the last minute because I thought it might
be too much with my bamboo chippendale chairs in a dinning room.
I still wanted a faux bamboo fixture, but thought one for a different part of the house
would be better. Thats when I spotted this beauty... Well it isn't actually a beauty right
now, but with a little TLC and fresh coat of shiny laquer it will be!
This fixture is identical to one that just sold at Circa Who for $600. I got it for 1/4 of the price!
I'm not sure what color I'm going to go with. I think I will have to wait and see what room (hallway, bathroom, bedroom?) it fits best in my new house, but I'd love to paint it a bright red kinda like this...
Red Tole Pagoda, Brunelli Designs ($1800)
Or maybe a classic gold
Gold Pagoda Lantern Chandelier, Circa Who ($750)
Or maybe even a hot pink?
What do you think?
