Lately, we had been offered a chandelier. He was collecting dust in the attic, and we thought I would find him a place of his own. This is what I did: I installed it above my freshly furnished dining room, but something annoyed me every time I looked at it. It was too heavy in our decor. So I thought I would lighten it up in the restaurant.

I first removed the 5 glass shades and proceeded to cleanse with the cleaner & varnish remover. I left it on and rinsed 3 times until the soap was completely removed.

Once cleaned and dried, I gave a coat of Colorantic oil primer, to ensure good adhesion of the paint to the surface. Primer is important, especially when we are not working on an usual surface.


Using the oval paint brush, I applied a single coat of Cotton Ball paint. I really liked the effect of seeing the original colour come through some spots, which already gave it the rustic look I was looking for. In order to perfectly match the look of my dining room, I accentuated the old-fashioned effect by sanding in a few places at random.


Using a dry cloth, I removed the dust caused by the sanding, so that it was quite clean before applying the final touch. Throughout the upgrading, the chandelier was suspended, in order to have 360-degree access to it. To conclude this nice transformation, I wanted to protect it without contact, to avoid the backstage and above all, not to forget little nooks and crannies. So it was with a spray lacquer that I protected it.


So here is a chandelier which, in a few simple steps, has taken on a new look and has taken the place that was intended for it!
