I have a candle chandelier in my kitchen. I love it. I think it brings a lot of character to the space. We recently took it down to put up streamers for a party we were having. Having it down for awhile made me realize how much it closes in the room. I feel like my downstairs is so dark. I am always trying to lighten it up. I used to feel like it was light enough, but then I think our trees got big and now we get too much shade. I am a person who needs sunlight…I think I am addicted to it actually. So, I really dislike when any part of my house feels dark.
Anyway, I love my chandelier but I didn’t want to put it back up and make the room feel darker again. I left it down for a long time. But I finally decided to paint it and see how it would feel.
Here it is before. I LOVED the rusty finish on it. But it just wasn’t working in my house anymore. (The ribbon was part of a party decoration for my son’s milk and cookies party)
So, I hung it up from the swing set out back and started spray painting away. I used a white color. I finished it, brought it in and hung it up and didn’t love it. It was just sooooo WHITE!
So, I took it down and glazed it. It looks a little better now and I am getting used to it. I may have to take it out back and spray it with some off-white paint. We shall see.
Here it is now.
Don’t mind my messy table. Ignore that I STILL haven’t painted those mirrors and hung them up.
Here you can see the glaze a bit.
What do you think?
