A couple of years ago I found a hideous 70's chandelier at the thrift store and have been saving it for a 'rainy' day to paint and redo. With the new dressing room completed, I finally found the inspiration (and the space) for it. Here is the project in photos:
|Hideous, right? I covered the white tips with painters tape to have some contrast against the silver.|
|Several thin coats of this.....|
|Isn't is amazing what spray paint can do?|
|The lampshades were fabric, so I was surprised to see how shiny they turned out with the paint. If it looks like it's handing too low - it is. I need to move it up a few links, but for now I am enjoying the full view of the 'new' light.|
|The gold finish gives off a pretty (and flattering) glow.|
COST BREAKDOWN: Lamp $3, Paint (2 cans) $9, Ceiling Dome - $24, Labor - free, Lampshades - free, Ribbon - free TOTAL: $36!
Get spray painting people - it's fun, creative and oh-so affordable.
