Woohoo! I finally did it! A chandelier is what I desperately wanted and I finally got myself together (I had moments when I just thought of buying one) to actually make and install one; Believe me, the story has been rather wiry and there are 3 visible bruises and two tiny cuts to prove my victory over the wiggly wires.
Thank you Tammy, for being such a darling and putting in my head the idea of wires. Thank you Janice for being an angel and saving me from the impending doom and for showing me her lovely Chandelier; if plain wires could do this to me, I shudder at the thought of what barbed wires could. Thank you Sarah for telling me that I have good taste in lights. Boosting one’s confi is not an easy job, not when someone’s trying to make a chandelier for herself :P. And last but not the least, thank you Chelsea for your suggestion that old school still rocks. This Chandelier is a combined effect of all your suggestions, thoughts and ideas. I hope you all like it.

A measuring tape
First the frame, then a coat of white, the attaching the crystals and lastly lacing the wire frame with the lights. Ta-da! It shines above our two seat table and we are loving it.
Let me know what you guys think! Have a happy, happy weekend!
