How to Find The Perfect Chandelier
Have you ever searched for the perfect light fixture? It could drive you crazy!
We have these light fixtures in most rooms in our Blue Cottage, and I want to replace some of them.
I had been searching for the perfect chandelier for quite a while. I just knew it was out there.
I knew what kind of chandelier I didn’t like.
Here are seven chandeliers styles I didn’t want:
I didn’t like chandeliers with exposed light bulbs because the light is just too blinding.
I didn’t like chandeliers that have lamp shades:
A silverware chandelier? Nifty, but not what I wanted.
I didn’t want a chandelier with real twigs or real candles (way too dangerous):
Or a French Empire chandelier:
For a second I even contemplated using chandelier stickers because I just couldn’t find one that fit all of my criteria.
But when I leafed through the Pottery Barn catalog one day, I came across this page — and knew I had found MY chandelier:
I love this chandelier! The only problem was the hefty price tag: the Clarissa glass droplet chandelier costs $399. Yikes!
There was no way I was going to spend $400 on a light fixture.
But I kept thinking about it, and after Christmas I thought, let me just see if it’s on sale now.
I googled “Clarissa chandelier” and found a blog, Copy Cat Chic, that mentions finding the exact chandelier for much less on Overstock.com.
It’s called “cone shape crystal chandelier” there and was listed for $179.
But that was still pretty expensive. I knew I could do even better.
I headed to Ebates, searched for “Overstock.com” and there was a list of all kinds of discounts Overstock offers: I chose the “10% off” discount, and because I was over $150, I also got free shipping.
Just by going through Ebates, I got another 3% off. Sold!
With a little frugal and savvy Internet research, I got the perfect chandelier that usually sells for $400 for only $150!
