This is my first Monday Made It! I have been thrilled to have time to work on a few things around the house since I finally finished my summer grad school classes, and I have been going a little crazy with spray paint. I hope that "Monday Made It!" can be "Monday Made Over!"
To prove my "I've been going a little crazy with spray paint" point, here is just some of the spray paint I purchased. Yes, I said some.
I have a really fun idea for a chandelier, so I went on a search for the perfect old chandelier. My city is lucky enough to have TWO Habitat Re-Stores, so I checked both of them out. The first one didn't have anything that I could use, so I tried the other, newer, bigger one. I hit the jackpot. Not only did they have a chandelier that I could use, they had multiple chandeliers in my price range!
I chose this one because I liked the little cups underneath the candles, the candles point up, and there is no glass on it! I considered one that had little glass globes that were around the candles, but I almost knocked one off and broke it, so I decided that probably wouldn't be the best idea. So this one won!
(I also got a much needed queen sized bed frame for $10! Yay! Maybe I can show it off in my next Monday Made It!)
So I cleaned all the dust off of it and used a liquid deglosser to help the paint adhere to the chandelier. Then I hung my chandelier up from a makeshift hanger I made out of 3 pieces of wood. Then I spray painted it with Rustoleum spray paint. I used the paint and primer in one, so I didn't have to prime it. Rock on! I did 3 light coats of spray paint.
I LOVE IT. The green is going to be perfect!
I can't wait for you to see what I do with this! (Heck, I can't wait to see what I do with this! I just need a second set of hands to put it up!)
I hope you have been working on some fun things for your home or classroom this summer! I love having time to work on some fun projects!
