The Importance of Presentation

Sometime, when I see a vintage light fixture listed for sale online, I am struck by how badly the fixture has been, well, presented.



I do not think this says: OMG! I just MUST have that gorgeous fixture!!!!!



It is hard to believe that this is the same fixture. Properly introduced. It should be noted though that, save for putting on new candle covers, and replacing the missing amber crystals, I did nothing to restore the fixture. But it is now presented as the exquiste beauty it truly is. Yum. YUM!!!!!

    Wow! I am enjoying the before/afters of the lights you restore!

      You are so sweet, Kelly! Thanks! Your comment encourages me to post more such before/afters!

    OMG! I WANT IT! It’s way more than YUM. If only it looked right in my mid-century house.
