Pink Chandelier

My darling daughter fell in love with some of the painted chandeliers we've seen. I, however, was not in love with a $45 price tag--especially for something I couldn't be sure worked! But when I found a brassy $6 chandelier at the DI, I thought it was worth the risk.

Here's what her bedroom light looked like BEFORE:



Totally boring! Let's ignore the fact that the rest of the bedrooms in the house still have the same light fixtures.

...and now?


Completely fabulous! Love that pink spray paint. ;-)
I think it may be her favorite thing in the room!

And the best part? I installed it myself, and it worked on the FIRST TRY!
