Crystal Chandelier for Under $45

If you remember in my previous post, I am in the middle of redoing my guest bathroom.  One way to really change up a bathroom is to change out the light fixtures.  I hated the builder grade one above the mirror and purchased a light fixture and installed it myself!  I totally believe everyone can install a light fixture.  I went on YouTube and watched a few videos and now I am a PRO!

Light Fixture I purchased from Overstock

But since I couldn't afford another light fixture for over the toilet, I decided to make my own.  I started with a really nasty fluorescent light.  
To uninstall I just had to unscrew a few screws and untwist the orange caps keeping the wires together

Next I found a crystal light holder at Hobby Lobby for $30!!  I used it for decorating a wedding I did a year back and its been sitting with no home.  I then went to Home Depot and bough a hanging light fixture kit in Nickel, they have all colors for $14.99.
All I had to do was take out the candle holder center, attach the post of the lamp and affix the hanging chains to the top.  Pretty simple!

And I LOVE the final product!  Check back for the rest of the bathroom reveal.
