  1. Well besides the fact that I am jealous…since I paid $90 retail for the exact chandelier… cool tutorial!


  2. I enjoyed the chandelier video, I think the jaws music where the shark is near the person would have been perfect.
    keep up the good work.

  3. You should be very proud of your Chandelier, it is just beautiful and I would love to have it (installed) at my house. To be honest I didn’t listen to the music but loved looking at all the pictures! I wonder how old this chandelier is? Is it modern or an antique, either way it is gorgeous and you certainly got a bargain.

  4. Oh my gosh, seeing you dance at the end of the video made me smile from ear to ear. Spontaneous dance parties are one of my favorite thing in the world – – combine it with one of my favorite PEOPLE in the world and it’s a dream come true! Now, I’m doing the “I did it” dance! Way to go, girl. You should feel very proud of this D.I.Y. sweet Candace!
