Before & After- A Chandelier

When we did my daughter's room makeover we went with a Paris theme. I knew that the room would not be complete without a chandelier. I searched online & in all the home improvement stores, but the prices were just too high! I had come across some great light fixture transformations in blog land & thought that just might be the route to go. So when I spotted this beauty at Goodwill for $14.99 I knew it would be MINE!!

BEFORE: Nothing a little spray paint can't fix right??


After a lot of dismantling, priming and painting (and then having the hubby figure out how to put it back together).

I think it adds that sophistication a 12 year old girl needs in a Paris room.
The jewels were from Hobby Lobby 1/2 off Christmas decor. I just strung them around until it looked good.

I am more than happy with the way it turned out. Oh the power of paint!! Domestically Speaking is having a Power of Paint party and I am linking up. Go find some inspiration for your next paint project :)
