Kitchen Chandelier *Sneak Peak*

As a much needed break from reviewing journal articles and writing lesson plans (ah the joys of earning a bachelors degree) I am going to let you in on my current project!!!



You see that beauty? Okay, well maybe diamond in the rough would be a better term ;^) My mom had him just hanging out in her garage, and didn’t even tell me! Tisk tisk mom…

I am going to put him in my kitchen over my island! Want to see what he is replacing? Are you sure you can take it?



I know I know, it’s okay you can stop screaming now. It’s what I so lovingly refer to as our department store lighting ;^) lol. Hideous and although it is bright it gives everything a slightly yellow tint *gag* sorry, got a little choked up there.

Well if you can see that little flush mount ceiling light in the background of the above picture, I am painting this new chandelier that same color.

spraypaintedit And guess what? Mom had this in her garage to… She’s been holding out on me! Normally I would have had this project done by now, but can you guess? RAIN RAIN RAIN… And spray painting in the house is not a good idea, yes I will admit to trying it once upon a time :^)…


QUESTION FOR YOU, take a look at the chandelier again in the first picture please, would you paint the white cylindrical things that go under the light bulb? The sleeves I guess you could call them? I don’t think I want them to be white? Help please :^) And hopefully in a couple days this beast will be a beauty! <3


  1. Yikes...that sucker is a little scary! Can't wait to see the finished product! Be sure to link up to Mad Skills Monday over at SuperStinkyBoys! Others will surely love this!


  2. haha yes he is! Hopefully a little elbow grease will help!!!

  3. I can't wait to see it when it is done. I would paint the candles too. Are you putting shades on it? I suppose it would depend on the shades.

  4. Yeah I was thinking paint the candles, and then I saw one where they weren't painted so I am torn, but I am sure I'll wind up painting them! I put shades on this chandelier in my dinning room
    but I don't know if I will on this one?
