Wood Chandeliers

I still have not been able to make a decision on a chandelier for over our tub in the Master bathroom. I recently spotted this one from overstock - it is $145 and I really liked the look of it.

I also fell in love with this one from Ballard Designs (but did not love the $200 price).
Also found this beautiful one somewhere on line for about $400.

Pottery barn and Restoration hardware also have some beautiful wood chandeliers. I started researching wood chandeliers more and found this post on the Reloved Rubbish blog. I of course started trying to find an old wood chandelier to re-make for cheap but I am not having any luck.
Before and After

So today I went on the JC Penny website. They have a home store and every once in a while sell things for half off. Today was my lucky day I found this cute chandelier for half off - Reg. $150 Now $75 (and free shipping on orders over $69 yeah!).
I know it is not that similar to the wood ones I love - NOT YET at least! My plan is to do a paint treatment on it and add some sort of hollow wood spindle to the strait middle piece. I am now on the hunt! I'll post my results when I have some to show.

By the way this one on JC Penny is also half off (Reg- $300 Now $150) and I thought it was so pretty too. Restoration Hardware and Ballard designs have similar ones for much much more!

Want pretty lighting for even cheaper? Check out this amazing blog post on how to make this pottery barn look-alike light for only $30!!!!
