I bought this mini chandelier years ago and had it above my soaking tub...I miss that bathtub so much because in my current home I barely fit in my tub. I would light the candles and let Calgon take me away, actually I have never ever used Calgon in my life...I prefer bathing salts. Okay, I am sure you are sick of or not interested in my bathing habits, so I shall get to the point. After seeing the image below, I decided to spray paint my chandelier red...
Courtesy: Eddie Ross (to see the before and how he put it all together, go here...he did a spectacular job and used many second hand items...my favorite!)
Here is my after:
Yes, I know, after seeing the Eddie Ross bedroom, my living room doesn't look as dazzling, but it is me and I love it. With my picture gallery to the right, my 1950's Asian man lamp from a fabulous vintage store around the corner (will do a post on that store because the owner is adorable and has the coolest vintage items) , the side table I saved from the trash and painted avocado green and added a curtain where doors were broken, my Craigslist chair and the unpainted wood Salvation Army chair that I got for $6, it makes me happy!
Just in case you were curious, I used Krylon H2O (low VOC spray paint) in Red Sea...
Have you all ever spray painted a light fixture and were happy with the results?
P.S. Remember to stop by Thursday for my pottery give-a-way!!!
