My Little Chandelier

I took a break from furniture late yesterday and had fun with a little chandelier I picked up recently.


This is how I found it.


I envisioned something lighter with more character and bling. I gave it a thick coat of antique white, and went through my stash of prisms to dress it up.





Here is another one with a different style. It was black before.



OK, back to the furniture. Till next time, don't forget to.......

They are both so beautiful! Love how you added all of the 'bling' -- I just finished a large chandelier and am getting ready to hang it in my gazebo -- they are so much fun! Who'd have thought those 70's chandeliers would get such a big boost with blog features! Thanks for sharing your beauties!

Hi Rosemary! These are both great chandeliers and I love the extra bling. Thanks for joining the Open House party this week.

Paint can transform everything, including chandies! Love how you added some bling, too. :-)

I love it, rehabbed Chandeliers are a good steady seller in my booth, I always have 2 hanging at a time and I always paint them white

I don't know how you have the time to take an "okay" chandelier paint it and add crystals. I would have seen it and said why bother...that is why you have the most unique items!!!

The chandies look great in white! Great job as always.
I've added some more gesso to the plateau for ya Rosemary...I think I'll get it right in a few more coats *winks*. Vanna

Gorgeous Rosemary!! Love every bit of it - just to let you know we picked up some Gesso this week....thanks for the inspiration!!

Love love love these Rosemary. The first one was pretty before but you really made it look amazing. They are both great but I'm a sucker for prisms and flourishes. Loving that stool too. You never disappoint.

Absolutely love this chandelier. I have a weakness for chandeliers though. Really I could have one in every room of my house :)
