No Mere Chandelier

No Mere Chandelier
Happy Friday! Get ready for some chandelier makeovers comin’ atcha!

I have amassed a healthy collection of chandelier before and afters, and what I love about them is they are ALL THE SAME chandelier! Even I have it! (Try to guess which is mine. Ok, I’ll tell you. It’s the first one!)

So, without further ado, here are the ladies:


Some matte black and toile covered shades, courtesy of moi. (Ha ha, I linked to myself, so I wouldn’t feel left out!) Ok, moving on:

The two-tiered version, simple and chic, by The Mrs. at House it Going. (Gotta love that name!)

Miss Mustard Seed herself, went the extra mile by including faux wax-drippings made with a glue gun! Brilliant!

A fall-ified, oil-rubbed-bronze beauty from the Enchantresses 3. See more HERE.

I would redecorate my whole existence around this one. From Cookie.

I sincerely revere this premier chandelier! Very glamourous redo from Cathy at The Stylish House.
And now here are a couple that aren’t the same, but were too fun to resist!

Funky ribbon fun from David.

If I’m not mistaken, I believe this was done with nail polish! Of all things! Wowzers. From Theresa.

Have a great weekend friends!

    I have been looking for an old chandelier to remake for my dining room, the light we have now points down (and is soldered) and is HOT, plus I can’t do anything fabulous with it!!! Thanks for the links! I am following you.

    You are too funny! Linking to yourself so you don’t feel left out. Thanks for my smile for the morning. I love chandelier transformations! The ribbon one has to be my favorite, but I can’t imagine the time it took to do that.

    Love them all. Yours – matte black – perfect. But that blue one … I also gasped. Okay, I gasped for the ribbon one too.

    Wow! They are all so beautiful. It is amazing how the same item can be transformed so many different ways. Now I can’t wait to get one for myself!!

    Thanks for the mention! I always love it. Anyway, I love the blue one and the funky green & pink one. Really great makeovers and proof that you don’t need to drop a chunk of change on a new chandelier.

    I really like the ribbon chandelier! I have another one to redo and I am liking that idea. Mine isn’t finished yet, I still have to put the dangles back. I dipped some of the dangles in nail polish but they looked awful, so I have to clean them.The rest of the chandelier was done using acrylic paint mixed with white glue.

    Oh thank God I’m not the only one with this horrible chandelier. I needed some great ideas for rehabbing mine. A must-do-immediately project!

    I am redoing the brass chandelier right now. Is there a reason that people haven’t taken the giant ball off the bottom? I just threw mine away and it still seems to hang just fine.
