It’s time for us to share our lighting adventures with each other! I’ve been looking forward to this day for a while. I’ll go first…

Remember the chandelier from the yard sale two weeks ago for $25?

I grabbed some brick red spray paint and when I got home I read the can and it said it was brown primer. Oh well. As long as it looks deep dark red, they can call it whatever color they want.

I found an inspiration page in the latest Pottery Barn catalog. Love the blues and the salmon mixed with white and wood. I’ll be trying to copy this feel in my office at the new house {moving in two weeks!}.

So, the top coat is done but I want to add in a little pinky salmony red to the base coat with a brush and some craft paint. But I’ll wait till it’s hanging in my new office to do that.

The chandelier is wired to a plug so I can even light it up and see how it looks.

Then I hung it on a hook to see how it was in the air. Love it.
