Cheap Chandelier Makeover

Almost one year ago we moved into a house with great bones.  Great Bones and old style, including the house's original ugly, ugly, ugly disgusting vintage bright orange carpet from the 1970's.  Our dining room also included a very lovely chandelier...not quite my style.  And since the whole house was in need of a makeover, our budget was being worn thin. 

So in came Mr. One Dollar Can of Spray Paint.

My hubby unwired the chandelier for me and hung it in the garage so I could paint it. 
(I don't have a picture of that step.)

After two cans of spray paint, this was the result.

Our dining room is still a work in progress.
But spray painting the chandelier was a fast, inexpensive and easy step to tide us over until we're able to purchase the chandelier of our dreams!
So Simple.

We never got to see the orange carpet. That would have been a sight. I love the look you have going now. So classy!

LOL!!! It does kind of look like water doesn't it! I so wish it was!!! It's just lots of fields and a few random big houses. I think the sky was just really blue that day!
