Lighting makeovers are one of my favorite things to see. There’s just something amazing about taking a shiny brass chandelier from the 80s, giving it a coat of spray paint, and making it look fresh and modern. Every time I visit my local ReStore, I browse the lighting aisle wishing that I had many more rooms in which I could use all of the lighting I find that just needs a little TLC.
If you’ve got an outdated chandelier, chances are it doesn’t need to be replaced. It probably just needs a little spray paint, perhaps some beads and baubles, and maybe even some new bulbs. Here are some great before and after chandelier makeovers for inspiration.

Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
