Sarah at A Little Of This, A Little of That contacted me and wanted to show off how she made an old brass chandelier look stunning with a little paint and TLC. I think that what she did is great, and I love that she reused an old light that might have been discarded otherwise!
- Do a “Pre Install” to make sure the fixture works! You don’t want to spend time fixing it up if it doesn’t work! Light fixtures bought at a thrift store are always a gamble!
- After you make sure it will work……Remove the white covers
- Tape over where the electrical stuff is:
- Prime your chandelier (I chose Krylon primer. Any primer will do)
- Spray paint it. I went with Krylon’s Ivory
- I then painted the white light covers (Krylon Ballet Slipper)
- Make a cord cover to hide the top of the cord
- Reassemble the chandelier with the white covers, and cloth cord cover
- I’m LOVING the contrast between the ivory chandelier, and the girlie pink light covers!
- I also loooove the feminine details of this chandelier….so many swirlies
- Here it is, hanging up in Miss J’s room
- I liked it, but thought it was still missing something…..Crystals! This thing needed some bling 🙂
- Miss J really likes her “fancy lights” as she calls them.
