This week I posted all three parts to our new tutorial series, where we take a brass chandelier and transform it with Chalk Paint. I thought I would share a a few more photos from the process. This is one from before
and here is a close up of the after
If you missed any of the tutorials, they can all be seen by clicking on the Tools tab, or for this project, in order, Video #19, The Preparation, Video #20 The Painting, and Video #21 Adding the Finishing Touches.
It really is a fast, inexpensive way to update any chandelier or light fixture. If you need more inspiration here are some of my chandelier and light fixture posts you may have missed: French Chandelier, French Curves, Light it Up, and DIY Faux Mercury Glass Sconces.
And although this has nothing to do with lighting or tutorials, I just wanted to share my excitement with you. I have been wanting a new sofa for my living room for years and years. I finally ordered one several months ago so you can imagine how delighted and surprised I was when a truck arrived, two weeks early, and delivered this!
