  {Chandelier Rescue}

BEFORE:

(this isnt acutally the one I had, just a photo I found of one very similar, but it gives you the idea! hehe)

I just love buying something that's ugly and making it pretty again!
I got this chandelier from craigs list for $15 about a year ago and I finally decided to do something with it!
So I gave it a fresh coat of black spray paint, and I added little shades is a beautiful purple tone that I got at garden ridge for $1 a piece!!

I think it looks pretty awesome now if I do say so myself!

AFTER:




Project Cost:
Chandelier $15
Black Spray Paint $1.00
Shades $6.00
Total: $22.00

Hello, I found you through Kimba. Love it! I have done two of these one for my kitchen and the other in my guest room. I think we should all from a spray painting club.

I found you over at Kimba's and wanted to see your post on spray painting. I am completely dying..it looks awesome, but with that being said, I am hyperventilating because I have had a chandelier identical to that in my attic since I moved into our house - 12 years ago, and just gave it to good will LAST WEEK!!! I love spray paint but would have never thought of that in a million years. Off to drink some more coffee and then mourn the fact I TOLD my husband I was keeping it or a decade for a good reason.:)
