I just gave my candelabra style lamp a little makeover.
Here it is before.
My inspiration was my art deco lamp base.
So, I dry brushed the candelabra with metallic silver, and touches of green.
It has more depth now, and the silver reflects beautifully in the crystals.
Working on my next redesign. Check back to see how an old, and recent find, became the perfect marriage.

It seriously looks like it's naturally aged over time! Great job!ReplyDelete
I love the transformation, it looks great! Chandeliers are one of my many weaknesses. I going to be repurposing a bird cage using silver as the base coat. Would you mind sharing...is the metallic silver an acrylic paint? Thanks BobbieReplyDelete
Its so cute!!ReplyDelete
I love what you've done!
What a wonderful make over, I'll have to try that on some of my brass things I don't like. Thanks, for stopping by our blog, LauraReplyDelete
I love it!!ReplyDelete
It is really beautiful, so much better in silver.ReplyDelete
... the price of silver just went up!!!ReplyDelete
of course it's beautiful ... you did it
Loving the silver!
What a great find...
It looks so beautiful on the table.
All the Best,
Oh, would have thought to add the green. Definitely makes it. Love the silver so much better.ReplyDelete
You should have your own TV show!ReplyDelete
Beautiful finish to a beautiful piece!ReplyDelete
What an amazing difference. It looks much better silver!ReplyDelete
Wow, it looks so much better! I have a similar candelabra (non-electic) that could use this treatment!ReplyDelete
Wow, this looks amazing! I have a few items in my attic that could use this, thanks for the idea!ReplyDelete
It looks beautiful Rosemary, adding the green made all of the difference. It looks perfectly aged.ReplyDelete

Love the makeover on the chandelier. The silver just makes it look more elegant.ReplyDelete
Your makeover is fantastic! I could hardly believe it when I read your post because just this morning I was about to get rid of a candleabrea very similar to yours because it was gold. Now I am inspired to try painting it silver! Have a great weekend.ReplyDelete
