From Brass to Class - Making of an ORB Chandelier!

So how did this beautiful chandelier come to be from

this sad and shiny chandelier, you ask....First purchase this chandelier for $20 from Craigslist!

Then use a $3.47 can of Oil Rubbed Bronze Metallic spray paint after you take off the white candle things and tape around the light sockets!

Buy six of these beauties off ebay for $12!

You will end up with a $35 NEW chandelier and enough paint left over to do more projects!!  To see the medallian makeover, please click HERE.

It looks so much better! I have the ORB and the shades, guess I need to be on the look out for an ugly-duckling chandy!

That really did turn out beautiful! I have that exact same chandy in my basement. It was in the foyer when we moved in and I put it over the stairs leading to the basement. That finish that you did on this would look great where I have it too. Hmmm!!! Yours is beautiful!

What a fantastic makeover! That looks like it would be an expensive chandelier, but you got it not only cheap, but one-of-a-kind. Lovely!
