How was ur weekend? This Sat gal pal Kathy and I met up in Manhattan for a spa day, including brunch and shopping. I got a facial and a ‘slimming body’ treatment too … though after my brunch and 2 glasses of wine I may had put the pounds back on! Onto today’s post …
I can get a bit cRaZyyyy when I have spray paint in my hands .. ooooh the POWER!!!!!! Guess, it’s bec I know how easily we can TRANSFORM an item with pAiNt (oh, sorry I channeled my craziness again! haha). I found a beautiful chandelier and a lovely beaded ceiling medallion for my foyer. I wanted the ceiling medallion to give more visual weight to the chandelier + ceiling soooooo … wanna guess what I did? …. yep …. thsssss <– that’s my spray painting sound! I found a ‘chrome (gloooossy beauty) plated’ color to match our chandelier:
Here’s our chandelier, please excuse the mess (my hair!!) …
Here’s the crystals … It’s a pain having to place each one individually (but oooooh so worth it afterwards):
Oh, here is what the lighting situation was before the chandelier … i know …. BIG zzzz + eeeewwwww:
We (um, hubby) removed the ceiling mounted light fixtures, and mounted the ceiling medallion (with my spray painting genius capability) and the chandelier …. isn’t it pretty?

Oh, for the blue wall I used a metallic paint to give it a pearl-like sheen – more on that on another post. I love our home, and sometimes (ok, maaaaaany times) I have to classify ‘myself’ as a client in order to prioritize my home projects (seriously, I have to add myself to my schedule … that is the ONLY way that I don’t procrastinate haha. Do you have any tips on how to not procrastinate from home projects?
