Monday’s Make-it … { our chandelier + spray paint}

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?

Here’s an overall view – what a MAJOR different form the boringzzzz ceiling fixture that we had …  making-it our home (reflecting us), one project at a time: 

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?

    I can definitely relate to the having to classify yourself as a client part. The medallion looks great- perfect scale for the chandelier.

      It def helps, though weekends come and go sooo quickly. Since I work so much during the week with home projects sometimes I simply want a break from ANY … which includes myself. However, it does feel GREAT when accomplished 🙂

    No tips on how not to procrastinate on home projects, I suffer from the same ailment 😉 Maybe I need to classify myself as a client as as well. The chandelier and the medallion look awesome!

  13. The metallic paint is a great touch and that really enhances the space with a chic modern look. Being a home remodeling person myself I think this is great work!
