I bought the cutest Hot Pink Vintage Chandelier from the Alameda Antique Faire a few months ago and I finally got around to re-vamping it. You may be thinking, it was so cute pink why would you paint it. I know I liked it pink too, I just figured my husband wouldn't think it was quite as awesome as I was in our bedroom!
The Before (Amazingly I remembered to take one)
My moms ingenious way to paint it, I hung it with a bungee cord from our basketball hoop.
I painters taped everything that I didn't want sprayed
Then I used my favorite Rustoleum 2x primer, almost 2 cans. then I used Rustoleum black glossy paint- 2 full cans and then a little bit. I could have done it with 2, but later realized I'd missed a spot! Now I just need to put the crystals back on and wire it up!
I originally wanted this for our bedroom, but since we didn't have an overhead light I put it in our closet. It actually provides a lot of light and looks great!
Chandelier- $99 (I think I haggled her down a bit, but honestly can't remember what I paid)
Rustoleum Primer- $6.80
Rustoleum Black Spray Paint- $ 12.00
TOTAL: $ 117.80
I have some other neat projects from my closet, I'll share those soon.
