Video #21: Transforming a Brass Chandelier with Chalk Paint and Wax. Part 3 of 3

This is the last installment of our 3 part video series where we transform an ordinary inexpensive brass chandelier using chalk paint. In this tutorial I demonstrate how to add the final touches to our now, old world, vintage style chandelier using dark wax. If you missed the first two videos in the transformation process of this brass chandelier, you can see them  by clicking,   Step 1 The Preparation, and Step 2 The Painting.

So there you have it, transforming a  brass chandelier in 3 easy steps. Here is another look of the finished project.

I hope to have the next group of tutorials back from the editors and posted on the blog sometime next week. In the meantime, let me know what you think of this one and our 3 part video series of taking a project from start to finish.

Revitalizing a light fixture with a little paint, is an easy and inexpensive way to give it an upgrade. You can even do it for outdoor lighting as I did for these Entryway Lanterns from Horchow, or these builder grade Weathered Zinc Brass Outdoor Lights. And Chalk Paint also works on patio furniture and gardening pots and planters.

Can’t wait to see more


I just wanted to thank you for the great videos. You do such an excellent job of getting the processes across in an easy to understand manner. The chandelier looks just beautiful and I can’t wait to try this technique myself. Thanks again!
