BRASS CHANDELIER MAKE-OVER THAT DIDN’T BREAK THE BANK 28/05/13

Happy Tuesday…..
Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend…..too bad it was so chilly!

Today, I want to show you a brass chandelier redesign.

My husband assembled a hard-top gazebo on our back deck, as I got tired of canvas. We went through two canvas ones in 3 years, so it was time to spend the extra money, and get the hard-top one.

Once it was erected, I really, really wanted some kind of chandelier hanging from the ceiling. I wanted something very simple, so I went on an adventure, searching the thrift stores, and even Habitat for Humanity Re-Store. Well, I found exactly what I was looking for in a “Goodwill” store….and only cost me $7.99. YEAHHHHH!!!


imageHOWEVER, it was a really tacky brass finish………

image

I slid off the wire protectors for each bulb, taped the connections for the bulbs and hung it in a tree to spray paint….I chose a bright red, to compliment my cusions and accessories….

My husband had to attach a plug at the end of the chandelier, as it had been wired into the ceiling by the previous owners.

AND…..the final result after the project was completed….

On the side wall, you can see a "Granny Door" mounted to the wall with shelves attached. I have had the door there for many years now, and has actually always been these colours. I just love to change up the accessories on the shelving to tie into the rest of the decor.

In another shopping episode, I found the canvas picture of the old car on the street in Cuba….the colours totally enhanced the “Granny Door”, and created a lovely “ISLAND” feel on the deck.

image

The bar cart was also painted the same red, turquoise and yellow, as the “Granny Door”, and is a great raised level for the herbs we have growing in pots….the chairs at the bottom of the garden are also red, as are a couple of galvanized planters on the deck.

image

The wooden tray on the table was also a thrift store find, and was totally unfinished when purchased…so it required a coat of paint too……

imageimageimageimage

These glass bottles that you see, are actually solar lights. They have a very soft glow at night.

I love the month of May, as the lillacs are in full bloom. I have a couple of bushes in the garden and always cut sprigs for the table and I take them into the house too!!!! (Such a “heavenly” smell)……

Have a fabulous week….
Util next time………Judy
