New light: to buy or not to buy?

Ok, I know I am crazy.. but our dining room light is a bit too boring and a bit to traditional for me. I love, Love, LOVE the tortous shell glass but I'd rather just have a candle holder in the glass than entire light fixture.. so the delema is this: Should I try to sell it on Craigslist and buy the light of my dreams(literally I have dreamed about this light) ? Would I actually make enough on this 1-2 month old/new light to make it worth while? Or should I keep it in storage and swap it out when we move...? hHmmm.
So here is a our current light. I don't have the best picture so I stold this pic from from X-mas time folder. It needs to be swagged over he table and hung a little lower. In fact, seeing this picture makes me realize that what I really need is new dining chairs.. maybee I should add these to my Craigslist post as well! Hah

And here is a pic of my dream glitzy drum light. horrrrible pic, I know. I can't find it anywhere online and I snapped this pic from the book at City Lights so the quality is horrible.

Here is a just barely better photo.. but at least you can just barely see the details!

  1. I'm digging the new option! :) The old one is traditional but nice enough that you might be able to fetch something for it on CL. I would sell it to help fund the new light. That way you don't have to store it. You could always buy a cheap fixture if you list your house later.


Hey guys.. be honest now !!
