Chandeliers - they're not just for dining rooms anymore. And they're not all made of crystal and gems. You can find them in just about any color or size these days - little mini ones for small rooms (think downstairs powder room) and cute frilly girly ones with bows and beads (think tween girl room).
I love the new trend of chandeliers being used in any room of the house - the informality of what has always been seen as such a formal home accessory. They are showing up in bathrooms, baby rooms, screen-porches - even closets! My mother-in-law recently downsized to a beach home, and no longer has a formal dining room. There was no place to put her crystal antique chandelier, so she decided to hang it in her walk-in-closet! My son's nursery had a small chandelier in it I purchased from Home Depot for only $40 and it added that extra little something magical to his room (especially with the dimmer switch).
A search on the local Craig's List brought up 104 chandeliers for sale - and most of them around $30. A majority of them are brass light fixtures popular in the 80s and 90s. All you have to do is sand the fixture a little and apply a couple of light coats of spray paint and you've got a wonderful addition to ANY room!
