Can't Afford the Dream Chandelier

Suzi AKA DesertDance Zone 9bApril 14, 2013

We recently purchased a true neglected fixer upper high in the hills with a city light and mountain view. The property has two groves of pines, and those groves give So CA a true mountain feel.

The 2 story staircase has an old weird ceiling fan? and my decorator daughter in law put the thumbs down! Chandelier, she says!!

How can I make something like this for less than $500.00. This thing retails for $4,000!! YIKES?

I was wondering if I could cut the trees out of sheet metal, and apply them to a basic 8 lamp chandelier.

All suggestions will be welcome!

It is not easy as you thought, I think this is good and if you change it, the lamp would not be bright. Just a little advice

does it have to be a fan? U can probably find many fine chandeliers for under 500 but a "fandelier" as they are called do tend to be silly pricey. I want one for my master bedroom where a ceiling fan is really a need so i can sleep but its probably one of those extravagances that will get cut when the time comes.

I'd go to the link below and start browsing. I already see a few with the tree motif under 500.

Here is a link that might be useful: rustic lodge chandeliers
