Need an idea for a diy brass chandelier makeover? I just pulled one off and honestly, I love it! We found this old thing at Out of the Closet (our local thrift store here in LA) and although it wasn’t perfect, it was the best option within our price-point that we had seen up to that moment. You can start out with any chandelier that you like the shape of. Basically, all you need to do is make sure it works, spray paint it, and add any decorations you might like! We chose to add some mardis gras beads (they were already black so we didn’t need to spray paint them – but you can if you’d like!) and acrylic jewels. In hindsight, I wish I would have bought the decorations online because they would have been a million times easier to find and probably much cheaper. Either way, I’m happy with how it turned out. I’m still planning on adding some more acrylic jewels for that extra bling and eventually I’d like to change out the sockets to actual candelabra sockets.. right now they are standard so the bulbs I’m using are a bit bigger than I’d like.
Here’s the brass chandelier before the makeover:
See the horrible contractor brass chandelier with the bad glass shades? I just don’t like it!! *shivers*
Here is a view of it from below. Yuck yuck yuck.
Now now. Who’s this pretty little thing?
All we did was flip the arms upside down, spray paint it, and add some beads!
How’s that for one of the coolest diy brass chandelier makeover’s you’ve ever seen?! If you have any questions or if you’ve done a chandelier, too.. I want to see it!! Please feel free to share your shizz in the comments and share this post with your friends.
