Chandelier Makeover

I had a love hate relationship with my foyer lighting. Loved the shape, HATED everything else about this chandelier.

I finally got around to pulling it down and revamping it when the wiring went bad. It was really a simple project with a big impact. I untwisted any component that would untwist, sprayed it with white primer and spray paint, and added some crystals that I found in the wedding aisle of the craft store.

I saw a lampshade makeover using ripped fabric strips gathered and hot glued onto the original shades and knew that would be just perfect for my 'new' shabby chic chandelier. This only took a few hours and a few dollars to change. Much better!
