Ceiling Medallion Transformation

While doing the dining room makeover, I purchased a brass chandy for $20 from CraigsList. No picture but we have all seen them!! I spray painted it ORB and purchased the small lamp shades from ebay for $12. We decided to use this medallion to give some attention to the ceiling above the chandelier in our dining room. I painted it tan but it just wasn't standing out much to me.


While on the ceiling, I decided to put a coat of the brown metallic glaze on it to make it a deeper, richer color with some depth to the detail. I painted it on with a foam brush and took a rag to rub it in over the details.


Here is the finished product! I think it turned out well and I like it much better!



I am linking up with the following parties so stroll on over and see more!!

This is a new one to me from Holly at 504 Main! Thanks for being a new follower of my humble little blog, Holly!!

  1. Bonnie, that medallion looks great painted like that. I need to paint my chandy orb, but hubby doesn't want it painted. He usually doesn't say much about what I do to the house, but this one he has. Maybe I can convince him later.
