~Ready for the BEST of DIY Party?!~
Are you a fan of ceiling fans? If you’re like me, you have a love/hate relationship with them. I love to USE a ceiling fan…but I hate to LOOK at them…
What’s a girl to do?
Take a chandelier that you got on sale for $25 and DIY it…
This project is perfect to share today…the BEST of DIY Party is all about great DIYs and I love this quick and easy chandelier makeover.
It started out as a simple glossy black fixture. I originally purchased it to use in my daughter’s room, but she wouldn’t give up her fan because she loves to have it running at night. So, I couldn’t use it in her room, but I kept it anyways. I got it at 75% off and I figured I could use it somewhere.
It’s a laser cut design and came with black crystals to be added on each arm.
I’ll be honest, I like it with the black finish, but I decided to use it in my home office/craft room…where I have no black. Using Valspar Satin Spray Paint in Whipped Apricot, I gave it a brand new look that looks unbelievable in my space.
Goodbye ceiling fan…hello gorgeous yellow chandelier…
Before I began painting, I taped off the light bulb sockets and the ends of the wires using Frog Tape. It did take two full coats with a few touch-ups to get a good coverage. I actually hung it from a tree to be able to spray paint it from every angle. It’s very important to be able to get to it while hanging, because once it’s hanging from the ceiling, you want every inch to be covered.
It looks so pretty lit as well…
