Reno House Update

Found this great chandelier @ The World's Largest Garage Sale. I had been looking for about a month for a fixture at all my regular Thrifty haunts and did not find anything for the price I wanted to spend. I had set a challenge to find something for $10. When I found this marked $10 I of course had to ask "will you take $8?". Not only did I pay $8 I also got the 5 muslin covered shades thrown in too!
So here is a sneak peak of the MB. If you need a refresher you can see the BEFORE HERE.

The refinished hardwood floors look Fabulous. Took more time than we expected, 2 weeks, but it was worth it. $1600 to do the Living Room, Dining Room, Hall and 3 Bedrooms including all closets. That price and all the relacing of the floors where the closets were expanded

Here is what the expanded closets look like, still need to do the fixtures and doors.

I,m linking this to Frugal Fridays @ The Shabby Nest.


  1. Great fixture for $8.00, John! The floors look great and that price is very good for my area.

  2. Nice find! I clicked on your link from The Shabby Nest since I also did a light fixture post this week. I would love to have you come over and check it out!
