The Chandelier Reveal


And... she's done!
I decided to go bold and went RED!


It was a little risky, but I am so happy to have such a fun chandelier hanging over our dining room table. It turned out exactly like I had it pictured in my head (that doesn't always happen).

before

The chandelier was originally hanging in the breakfast room, but was moved to the dining room. What you can't see in the before picture are the layers of dirt, grime, and pet hair that had to be removed. It was gross and took a LOT of time and patience, but was completely worth it. (I can say that now that it is done.)


Have you taken a chance and painting something with a bold color lately?


And just in case you are wondering...I went red on the chandelier instead of the dining chairs.

  9. That's incredible! I love how cheery the red is - I'm even reconsidering my own chandelier makeover. I was planning on doing white, but now I'm inspired to try something a little brighter. Great job!
