Chandelier Before & After



Take an old chandelier and make it great!

My daughter loves princesses (don’t get me started) so she really lucked out that our “new” house came with a crystal prism-clad chandelier.

The individual lights of the fixture were covered by grape-etched glass covers which had to go.

The old brass color didn’t bother me too much, but after selecting her room colors, we thought a bright, funky color would be best. Here is the before shot:


This project was really simple. I cleaned the fixture and spray painted it while it was hanging.

Here is how it turned out:


Tah-dah! If you have any interest in getting one of these or something similar, you can easily find old brass fixtures at thrift stores, your local Habitat For Humanity, E-Bay,Craigslist, or a weekend garage sale. An old fixture that you are planning to paint shouldn’t cost more than $10- $20 bucks. Send me your photos of completed projects- I’d love to see more funky colored fixtures!
