Shabby Chic Chandelier BEFORE and AFTER

In real life I work full time, and am back at school again, plus I have a family. There isn't much time for creativity (well the second life creativity I can work on slowly and without much mess). But I took two weeks off this summer, just to be with my children, and do some projects.

My SL avatar is so creative - I thought - let me bring some of that into my real world. I painted/distressed a hutch, dresser, chandelier, and created some french linen (my test). And I will show you the result of all of those projects. I have step by step guide - and if there is enough interest - I will post them.
