DIY: A Bright Idea

Reverse the role of the ordinary  out-of-date brass chandelier; it's time to shine!

Arm yourself with:
  • A thrifted brass chandelier
  • Sandpaper
  • Spray paint in color of your whim- whatever it is you like, the chandelier will be just hunky-dory with it.
  • A nice spring day
  • Possibly an electric man of sorts

A hoary chandelier in the raw. 

The price sticker betrayeth you not: cheap.

Roughen up the finish with sandpaper in order to intice the spray paint into sticking.

Turn on the charm! And be proud of yourself. This is not an accomplishment to make light of!

I wouldn't want to keep you in the dark; it's true, chandeliers can also be quite a bit alluring with candles. The soft, ancient, glow adds massive atmosphere under star studded skies. Here's how:

 Gut the chandelier. This is not complicated: just take out anything that would get in the way of a candle. My brother did this for me with one of his nifty tools.
Think of medieval people and dinner party festivities!
