Bedroom Chandelier

When we moved to this house last July, the master bedroom was poop brown.  Now if you like brown, I do apologize but I am not a fan of earth tones and I'm plum sick of brown.  Before we even moved in, I had Handyman Tom re-paint it all in Benjamin Moore's Snowfall White.  But this light fixture was still there.  I actually quite like the fixture but in the bedroom? That was just weird looking.

Remember back when I confessed my addiction to thrift store junking?  One of my finds were these two chandeliers for $20.  So glad I hoarded kept them.  Because I was able to use one for the bedroom.

On the same day that I spray painted my bedside lamps, I whipped out the coral spray paint and gave these a few coats.

And then Tom hung the chandelier and it looks fabulous!

And who doesn't love a before and after?

Recently, I heard some designer on tv saying that chandeliers are "so over".   Well good for her but I'm still loving them and swoon every time I flip on the light.  Anyone else still loving chandeliers as much as I do?

Linking up this spray painted goodie to my regular parties and to  Serenity Now, Home Stories A to Z,  Cedarhill FarmhouseCoastal CharmWatch Out Martha, Jennifer Rizzo,From My Front Porch to Yours, and Salt Tree. 


  1. I love your thrift store chandelier! It's gorgeous in that coral color. I hope chandeliers are "over" then there will be more at the thrift shops for me. :)

  2. Perfect color! I'm in the midst of my own lighting diy. Thank you for the inspiration! You have a new follower.

  3. I am so loving the coral! A pop of color is just fun! Love it! Come link up to centerpiece Wednesday and share this post with us

  4. Your chandler turned out great.
    I think everything is in as long as you like it.

  5. Oh man I love that! Coral is always a great color choice.

  6. I am still and will always be obsessed with chandeliers. And yours looks super cute!! Perhaps I can get my husband to go for a similar thing if I paint it a manly color. XD Camo-ndelier? Maybe?

  7. I love this - and I have to admit I wouldn't be brave enough to add that much color to a chandelier in my home, but maybe some day! Enjoy your "brilliance"!


  8. Great project !!

    I would love you to come and share @ Craft, Create & Inspire linky party !!!

    Look forward to seeing you there :)

  9. This looks amazing, As someone who loves colour I think is a definite improvement. As as for chandeliers being "over" I don't think so! Chandeliers are dead classy! If you love something then you should have it, enjoy it.

  10. Your coral chandelier is gorgeous, coral would be a great compliment to any number of other colors. I am thinking of aqua for my guest bedroom, wouldn't that shade of coral be perfect for accent? I can see it a pure white room too, it would add a perfect pop of color.

  11. I so feel your pain! My new house was poop-brown everywhere too. I adore the newly spray painted chandy. Wonderful job!

  12. I love this change!
    I am featuring it tonight - thanks for sharing!
