We're pretty sure this isn't what Debby Boone had in mind...
Last year we threw a Halloween party. It had a mad scientist theme. And mad scientists keep Gothic, nature-inspired chandeliers in their sunrooms, right? At least, we think they do. So after buying a seriously messed up brass chandelier at the Salvation Army, spray painting it and some twigs flat black, then piecing them all together - well there you have one mad scientist chandelier made-to-order.
We swear that the sunroom didn't have cheesecloth and a crazy light fixture hanging in it 365 days a year. Proof positive:
