chandelier makeover

I decided I wanted to modernize a few chandeliers.
I took some of my old chandeliers that were the old brass and I painted them some different colors and added some glaze to them.  I used some of my crystals that I purchased recently.  Hubby rewired them. This one went from  an ugly duckling to a beautiful swan!
Here is a before and after picture for you.  I like their new look.  What do you think?
I just noticed this one is missing a bulb in the front!  lol!  its still pretty!


  1. It has such a lovely soft look now. You have a way with chandeliers, my dear. I will be looking for this beauty at your sale.

  2. I would not have noticed the missing bulb till you pointed it out! It is very pretty with the new look! I loved that you had chandeliers hanging throughout your barn when I was there...I LOVE EM!

    And it does pay off to pick up crystals or prisms when you find them never know when an old beautiful chandelier needs them
