YAHOO! Gone is our breakfast room brothel chandelier!
Well it wouldn't have been bad, but it was bedazzled.
There were crystals hanging from it.
And over each of the lightbulbs, like a little net of crystal beads.
So. Not. My. Style.
In came this little beauty from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
Not exactly attractive in the builder special bronze that you find in every house.
But for $15.00?
Oh I can so make that work.
Enter Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze spray paint.
This is hands down the best spray paint. Ever.
I want to paint everything with this.
And have started Chris on another project with it.
I had to go get two more cans today!
A classic black chandelier, with simple linen shades.
The shades were the most expensive part - $3.33 each at Lowes, and I needed 6.
I've looked up similar style chandeliers online.
This from Ballard Designs.
Those are $13.00 each.
So the total for this one would have been $277.00, plus shipping.
Pottery Barn offers this Architectural Salvage Chandelier.
For $299.00, without shades.
Shades? 3 for $39.00.
Total for the PB light?
$377.00, plus shipping.
Price breakdown of mine?
$15.00 for the light fixture.
$7.50 for the spray paint.
$19.98 for the shades.
Less than the shades at Ballards or Pottery Barn.
Next up? Revamping the globe fixtures in the breakfast room.
And replacing the dining room ceiling fan with another DIY chandelier.
