Katie from Matsutake has a fun, bright style, just like this chandelier!  Actually, the chandelier was neither fun nor stylish, but it certainly was bright.  And so shiny. Is YOUR light fixture outdated?  If you regularly use its reflection to check your teeth for lettuce without leaving the table, then yes.
Katie wasn’t down with that, so she flipped the arms around, painted it with, (you’ll never guess) an 87 cent bottle of yellow craft paint, and used doilies as shades! (Don’t worry, she took all proper precautions and the doilies are not a hazard at all).  It’s so lovely and ladylike now, it makes me want to have afternoon tea, and I don’t even drink tea.  Cheers!

    Cute! I have this same “before” chandelier over the breakfast table. A few months ago, I sprayed it with oil-rubbed bronze. Though mine turned out great, her “after” is so unique!

    Too cute the bulbs look as if they are sitting in lace cups and the yellow is the sweetest.

    This is wonderful. I have this same awful fixture and I loathe it. Does she have a tutorial?
