This is precisely what I am looking for. I think I'd paint the whole thing the same color as our bookshelf -- which is this color and then stick some beauty-ful CFL's on it. Can you see it?
It is $180 though and with Brimfield coming up in May, I'm thinking I could find a better deal if I held my horses.
As a side note: when searching for antique chandeliers one finds quite a few lovely pairs of earrings. Anyone have a ball they must attend? 'Cause I've got the lobe decorations you've been looking for here and here.
