Some of you might remember the Chandelier DIY project I shared a long time ago — here. One savvy lady took her standard, mass produced brass chandelier, gave it a good spray paint and, within minutes, that ugly duck was transformed into a chic, purple beauty!
My close friend Bianca and her husband bought a wonderful property, nestled in the quiet hillsidse east of Seattle. (This is their, not so shabby view! Envision at night. ).
The entire house is going through a complete remodel and new furnishings will be bought once the architect is done with his work. Meanwhile Bianca will have to live with this brass chandelier which came with the house.
Although the chandelier came down for New Years and we all danced below this happy ball! (Bianca & hubby throw fun parties!).
Anyway, inspired by my post, Bianca recently hung her brass chandelier in a tree in her garden, gave it 2 coats of white paint (her hubby thought she had lost her mind) and now her dining area has a new fresh, fixture to go with the white linen chairs. It is a temporary fix. But I wouldn’t be surprised if this beauty later will move into her daughter’s bedroom.
All it took was this (matte paint) x 2 coats. And 30 minutes later the “new” fixture had moved back in. Cost = $4. And now you can see the lines and details of the chandelier much better!
I am not a big DIY girl (just don’t have the eye) but I think this is a brilliant brass chandelier makeover. Might need to try it myself one day. I see a red chandelier for me… Or an emerald green one in an all white room. (Oh, that would be ultra chic!). Admit that you are a little inspired!
Happy weekend to you all.
