Light fixtures are expensive, especially BIG ones!
So if you have one and you like the shape, which I did, just paint it!
AND if you are lucky enough to have a nice medallion with it, you can paint that too!
The medallion is really the part I love most about this project.
Chandelier Makeover …Before
It has lots of lights that I love and is simple yet elegant.
Gold has made a come back in decorating but let’s be honest…not exactly like this 🙂
The great medallion is hidden in a sea of white.
Supplies…which I had all on hand!
*left over paint from the walls (Gauntlet Gray from Sherwin Williams),
*Spray Paint (Krylon in Dover White)
*Glaze (Valspar in Bronze)
My husband took the chandelier down for me and I hung it in a tree in our back yard in the woods. This made it super easy to spray paint. I was certain I had a picture of this but just can’t find it 🙁
The medallion is not attached to the ceiling so once the light came down it came down too. I painted it with the wall color first. After that dried I just brushed on the glaze. If you have never worked with glaze, you should! It is not fast drying so you can work to get the look you are going for.
I’ve debated putting shades on each light but never decided to go for it…instead I added round bulbs! You have to see how it looks now!
Have you ever hung a chandelier in a tree??
