My friend has a closet I envy. First of all, it's huge, compared to mine. She has room for everything in there, and she even hangs art on the wall! There are many great aspects to it, but the best thing of all is that she painted her ceiling a glittery silver and She. Has. A. Chandelier!
I love chandeliers. And I have one in nearly every room of my home. Even where they might seem inapprorpiate. In my studio, in my husband's office, in our den, in our hallways, everywhere except the kitchen, and my closet.
My friend's closet and her chandelier didn't really inspire me to go out and get one for my closet. My closet didn't seem to warrant a chandelier. It's a pretty small space, and I'm not great about keeping it organized. I don't spend much time in there, so really, I figured, why bother?
But that's what birthdays are for! My friend, the one with the fabulous closet, bought me the cutest little chandelier, for me to hang in my closet. I would've never bought it for myself...and that is what makes the perfect kind of gift. Something you would never buy for yourself, but that you fall in love with when it is given to you.
