The longer you look at something you grabbed from the trash the more it loses its luster.
These three brass pendant lights caught my eye because I've been wanting a Moroccan lantern of some sort and the filigree seemed to have potential. Plus there was something so fabulously awful about them, all blue plastic encrusted and ready to hang in Barbie's Dream Harem.
Now they look to me like headgear for Sauron's henchmen.
What do you think? Should I attempt a de-bling? Embrace them as they are? (after a better cleaning.) Or quietly put them right back where I found them?
