A new kitchen light

We had been dealing with a bad ceiling for awhile when I found this old door curbside. The chandelier was a garage sale find for $5. I came up with the idea to cover the bad ceiling with the door, and install the light from it...the rest is shabby history. I love it..

Prior writes: very awesome...You've proven that style isn't about the money spent, but imagination, fearlessness to try something new, and sometimes some hard work.
