Have you seen all the gorgeous chandeliers that people are repainting? Have they inspired you to hit up your local thrift stores? They did me! I set out to find an inexpensive gold chandelier that I could paint and use above my dining table. There were quite a few that I found. But, since I am quite cheap, oh I mean “frugal”, I waited til I found one for $1o! The store didn’t even know if it worked or no. But I thought for that price, I couldn’t pass it up! Luckily it works!
Before spray painting it with Krylon’s Navy Blue, I covered the light bulb spots with tape for protection. Spray paint has always intimidated me. However, the more I use it the more I love it! It dries soooo fast!
This is the cheap Ikea lamp that came with our house when we purchased it 5 years ago! I can not believe it has taken me so long to replace it. What was I thinking? I have no idea how to do anything electrical, so I was not going to tackle this project alone. My parents came out this weekend and my dad was so excited to have something to work on while he was here. I think he was more excited about changing this lamp then I was. Come to find out he hated the lamp!
