So it has been... well.. forever since I lurked around Craftster and just as long since I did anything.. well.. crafty... the trend was finally broken and I just finished my new (to me) chandelier. I had a friend of a friend keep an eye out on an old chandelier for me.. he finally found one, it was a a bit of a sad shape.... Luckily most of the crystals were still there, just in need of cleaning. I took the whole thing apart, sanded it, cleaned it, primed it then painted it with Rustoleum spray paint. The candle covers still need to be replaced - I have not ordered them yet... and yeah.. there are now bulbs in all the sockets Smiley I also rewired it from a hardwire, to a swag light.. it resides in my living room.

box of part and pieces...


then after in my favorite fun colors!



it felt awesome to do a create project again! Cheesy

I love it!!

I always see all these old, ugly chandeliers at tags sales & such... and I feel like there has to be SOMETHING I can do with them... but inspiration never struck.

Maybe this weekend I'll go out and find one to try it out on... though I'm not sure about the rewiring you did- is it something you already know how to do, or did you find a book/tutorial on it?

I normally hate chandeliers for the main reason of how yours looked before hahah gold plated, looks blah and boring. But I would hang your revamp in my house!!

How many times did it take to spray it so it came out even looking? (We're about to tackle some of our furniture with Rustoleum spray paint haha!
