Brass Chandlelier Makeover

Every time I go to ReStore, I see several brass chandeliers and bargain prices.  I’m always so tempted to scoop them up, but unfortunately I have no place for them in my tiny condo.  But I hate passing them by, especially when they’re so easy to update without spending a ton of money.

This brass chandelier makeover from Katie at SweetGirl Expressions is a fantastic example of what can be done with these brass chandeliers.  Katie’s chandelier started out looking like this…

And with a little paint, fabric, and bling, she turned it into this beauty…

Isn’t that pretty?! She used it in her dining room, but it would also look great in a bedroom, a little girl’s room, or even in a bathroom. Really, you could use it just about anywhere.

If this pretty, feminine style isn’t quite your thing, and you prefer a more rustic look, then check out how I spruced up a brass chandelier for John & Alice’s bathroom using spray paint and jute. The possibilities are endless!

    It’s beautiful! It looks a lot like my chandelier currently (minus the cord cover, I just have a chain, note to self, buy cord cover;) I just got a hideous chandelier in a badly done bright pink (nauseating color). I plan to spary paint it white and see if that is enough, but may add beads or other colors, it has metal flowers interspersed around a bare bulb enclosure (weird, but thought for $2.99 I would see what I can do with it). I love this project you showed, its lovely. I bypassed a big chandelier that was similar but not as nice for the weird flower one I selected….(didn’t want to have to run hard wiring and this already had a plug)
