I am so excited to share with you another project. I know...lot's of projects lately. I feel like I'm "nesting" but I am so not pregnant so take a deep breath. Why is this then? I don't know...Maybe it's a phase...
A few weeks ago I was at a yard sale and saw this chandelier for an awesome deal of $2. I had BIG plans for it. [smile]
Not that there was a thing wrong with the chandelier that was in the kitchen but it simply did not work with our decor.
So after I found the chandelier I immediately painted it and got it hung. I used Rostoleum's Hammered brown color. It took about three coats. Not to bad.
But then...it was time to find the shades. I knew I might have to compromise on the shade because um...hello, have you seen the price of shades lately? ROBBERY I tell you. Crazyness. I looked on ebay, walmart, target...everywhere! And I could not find a decent deal for shades.
So the girls and I were in Hobby Lobby the other day and I may or may not have shrieked [they are so used to it by now] when I saw these...for $3.99 AND 50% off! That's what I'm talking about.
They were a little plain so I then went over to the trim section and found some fancy-shmacy trim stuff. And then put it back when I saw that it too was highway robbery. Then...I found this trim on clearance for 6.99 a yard. Then, I was happy with it. [that was way to many "then's"]
I decided to hot-glue around the top edges to still give the effect but to not use up so much trim. It was just about a yard of trim for five shades.
Next up...laundry room makeover. Have mercy that place needs some cheering up as much time as I spend in there. [smile]
