Thrift Store+Vinyl=Framed Glass Chandelier

This framed, glass chandelier has a future ahead of her.  She'll eventually hang at a few upcoming parties with no wall behind her, but for photo taking purposes, I plucked down a canvas painting and hung it against the wall.  This was really easy to put together, and I think it's going to make a real splash at the parties it will be attending in the (near?!?!?) future.  ;O)  I saw an idea like this at Third Monday.  This one shop has an old window with a colored vinyl picture like this hanging in the window...and I got to thinking...  I hunted down a vinyle chandelier at Hobby Lobby (they are also all over the net).  I got mine for half off ($10).  It also came with rhinestones, and can be plopped onto a wall if the frame isn't doing it for you. 
I then found a frame at the Thrift Store for $5....I'm sure I could have found one cheaper at a garage sale, but I'm kind of into this molding.  I sprayed it with a 99 cent can of glossy spraypaint from the store. 
I applied the vinyl, and now...I need to start gathering the rest of these supplies for the festivities. 
I have a week of Mother's Day post going on, so I'm interrupting so I can enter this in a vinyl project in a round up at the Iron Crafter

This is really cool, Christy. I bet it will look awesome hanging by itself without a wall behind it.

Love the idea and the look, Christy! I think it would look great even hanging on a wall all the time.

Did you put the decal on the front of the glass or the back? Meaning is it the sticky side that faces out?

I put the decal on the front. Either way would probably be finem, but mine is several years old and it seems to be holding up well. :O)
