Thrifty Treasures: Chandelier

Photobucket

This beauty came from a local thrift shop....I could kick myself because we removed one JUST like this from our old house and donated it...shoot.

I scratched it up with sandpaper, sprayed a bit of primer on it, then spray painted it!

It's all finished and hanging above the table in the schoolroom! I'll be posting pics of that and my most recent chair re-do soon.

For TONS more perusing of others' thrifty treasures head on over to

Rhoda's at Southern Hospitatlity!

  1. Love the redo. Know what you mean - I have gotten rid of some things in the past that I wished I had kept.

  2. Wow. Great idea. I have one of those over my dining room table that I can't stand. I think I'll try painting it. Thanks for the idea.

  3. I thought those were blue candles on the chandy, and I thought, Wow, that's really pretty! But I figured out it's painter's tape, isn't it? I really need to wear my glasses ALL the time! WILL you be putting candles on it? I just made one of these into a teacup chandy birdfeeder. I'll be showing it tomorrow. Can't wait to see how yours turned out!

  5. Where is this pretty little baby going to go? I know that same feeling you got when you wondered why in the world you gave something away instead of keeping it. And then when you see someone else re-purpose the exact same thing to make it fantastic - Maddening... AAAHHH....

  9. It's it maddening when you get rid of something and then you have a use for it. But you got your new one at a bargain price and I'm sure it looks great in the schoolroom

  11. My mom offered me one very similar and I turned it down. Don't know what I was thinking. I am sure it is going to look great! Jackie

  12. I have one almost exactly like it hanging over my dinning room table this very second. I have been pondering giving it a good coat with a can of spray paint for a bit of a face lift.

    HMMMMMMMM maybe a trip to the Wal-Mart is in order for some pray paint...

    Blessings
