The Chandelier

Chandeliers are the ultimate accessory, and my favorite. If I had it my way I would put one in every room. They are the most elegant piece in home accessories, and are simply just lovely. They can sometimes be a bit on the expensive side, I have a way around that. I get a lot of my chandeliers form thrift stores, garage sale, junk store and second hand shops, and paint them. Those ugly brass chandeliers are everywhere in those types of places, you only have to do 2 things. Find out if the the chandelier is wired and ready, if not ask an electrician to rewire it. It should be very inexpensive, and quick. The next step grab some spray paint, for a more modern look go for high gloss, that's what I use on all my projects. My go to colors are black and white, but if you're feeling bold go for a color like turquoise or pink. Below are some photos of rooms with beautiful chandeliers that hopefully give you some ideas.
