Painted Chandeliers….project #5 in Chloe’s room.

Painted Chandeliers
They are everywhere now days.
They can add such a bold pop of color and some fun whimsy to a room!  This painted glass chandy from Addicted 2 Decorating is so pretty.
…and this fuchia colored one with some bling…..yes please! Where did she get those awesome light bulbs? They look crystallized!
My friend Cristina, from Remodelando la Casa gave her old chandy a facelift this past spring.
I ran across this old chandelier while at the GW this past winter. Everything was 1/2 off because they were switching locations. Final price = $7! I didn’t know where it was going to go, but I scooped it up for sure!
(Upside down saucers? My kids must have been playing with this.)
+
Valspar 12oz. Orange Gloss Spray Paint
(must be nice stuff because it sprayed like a dream. Seriously, It sprayed WAY nicer than what I’m used to…just an FYI.)
=
I ended up putting it in Chloe’s room. I needed a fun pop of color and she needed a overhead light. When we moved in, the light in her room didn’t have a cover.
While I was at it, I figured I would spray paint something for the shelves….
….and the cheap gold mirror that goes above the coat rack. It actually much better now that it’s orange.
What do you think of painted chandeliers? Fun and whimsical? Or painting over the original beauty?
BIG NOTE! My friends are having a party about color!
I’m linking up….head on over and link up or check it out for more great color ideas!

  1. Really, really fun! I could see doing one of these in a fun bathroom or a sophisticated kid’s room like yours. I really love the orange.

  2. Love it Katie!! the orange is fabulous!! :) She has an incredible room!!

  3. Katie,

    I’m in love … we are both having our very own orange moments this summer, aren’t we? How fun, fun, fun! And I used Valspar for fish sticks (and a few other to be revealed at a later date accessories) …

    Thanks so much for sharing your fun and whimsical chandelier at our link party!

    :)

    • haha! Thanks Linda, I didn’t even think about the fish sticks being the same color, but they are! I do like that color! There’s just something really fun about a good orange!

  4. Love the fun orange color! It looks so much better after a nice coat of paint. Great job!

  5. Chloe’s room just keeps getting better and better, Katie! She’s not going to want to say goodbye to it when your house sells *crossing fingers for you*

    I don’t know if I have any orange in my house but you’re definitely making me take a second look at orange spray paint :)

    Take care!

    P.S. Now I get all your blog posts in Google Reader, but your comments have gone back to being from a no-reply blogger. Hmm?

  6. Thanks Katie! ;) I love how the orange color pops in Chloe’s room!! I also used orange to give a good pop of color in my kids’ bathroom, I’m loving it!!

    Have a great weekend!

  7. SO great!!! I love this use of color, so whimsical on the chandy!! Thank you so much for linking up to our party!! :)

  8. I LOVE the color! My daughter’s room needs something like this! Thanks for sharing at Fabulous Friday!

  9. Your chandelier is HOT! I’ve been wanting to paint the one in my dining room, but I’ve been nervous about doing it. Not that I don’t like change–what if I hate it? The first step is the hard part for me.

  10. Love it, I am just trying to figure out where to put one of these, it’s hot here in the south and we have lots of fans. I know people hate them but they have saved us this summer I hope you can come by and link up to my first blog hop!

    • Hey Kelley! I know what you mean. We lived in HI for awhile. I’m not a “fan’ of ceiling fans. (no pun intended), but there are some places you just have to have them! Although people have been doing some cool things to them lately! Painting, adding drum shades ect, ect….

      Thanks for stopping by. I will be over to link up!

  11. great splash of color! bold!

  12. Really love it! So happy! I’ve got a Chloe as well. Thank you for sharing. Visiting from Redoux.

  26. It’s gorgeous! Love the color! Thank you for sharing your wonderful project at Potpourri Friday!

  27. This looks WONDERFUL!!! Thanks for sharing!

  28. That is awesome! It looks great and the color is perfect. Megan

  29. That orange chandi would go so perfect in my house! I have painted three for my house, two builder basic ones that I already had were painted black and I found one for my room, that one is now cream. I gotta step outside the box a bit, those colorful ones are awesome!

  30. LOVE your chandelier! I’m actually working on a huge home office overhaul and bought a old chandelier at Habitat Restore and am planning to paint it orange! I think you might’ve just sealed the deal!

  31. The chandier you did looks really cute! Although, I must say that I’m partial to the fuchsia one, because that’s my favorite color. It looks awesome!

  32. Adds a nice pop to the room! Very pretty!

  33. Such a fun and flirty color! (I’m off to see if you have a room tour of this bedroom as I spy something cool hanging on the wall.) Wonderful job, Katie!

  34. That is such a fun color! Please share this on Pin Inspiration Thursday! http://www.addhousewife.com/2012/08/pin-inspiration-45.html

  35. Love this! I love what a little spray paint can do! I found the perfect chandelier for my daughter’s room, but it was brass. We sprayed it white and it looks like something you could buy nowadays – but I have the only one! I love how paint can personalize things! Beautiful job! Visiting from Live Laugh Rowe!
