Spray Painted Chandlier


This clock I found on a discount table at a craft and clock supply
shop where i bought the paper faces and hands for the shaker clocks...

It had a nice convex glass dome and was brass. It was
discounted to 6.00 dollars...I sprayed the brass with the bronze paint,
then printed out a pic of our koi "little red nose" ...took off the hands
and glued the pic in the center. Then we made the wood back for it,
I wanted it to look like a pocket watch...the one pic is to show the
size, the other one is it hanging in place in the galley part of the kitchen.

It's no big shakes, but I think it would make an awesome gift to a pet
owner of a cat, dog, horse, or whatever...as a gift. A Pet Clock...

Here is Snoopy and the Fokker, hand painted and hand whittled
and carved by one of our little knots.

The antique chess table that belonged to the head knots
grandparents...the top was totally ruined with severe water damage.
I thought it was beyond repair.
The head knot surprised me with the restoration, At least seven
tiles were replaced, it also had several numerous cigarette
burns.

Table came out great. Its nice to be able to bring something back to its former glory.

You also have some very talented little knots there as well.

Ok, so I'm at it again, rearranging some paintings and spray painting the frames, sort of...
I sprayed some antique hammered bronze paint on tin foil,
then mixed some gold leaf paint in it and ragged it on the frames.
Waiting for it to dry, then I'll hang them up.

It all started yesterday when the head knot suggested we add the windmill
painting to the wall above the TV...So, I thought I'd liven up the frames
as well...Hope it looks good.

but, it was in your face 'bright.'

So, I bought Rust-olium antique hammered bronze... and said, I hope we've not going to mess this up!
He said, so we'll buy a new one...but, really
that outcome was not what I wanted. I love the style of this one...

So we took it out on the deck, hung it from the Pergola, said a Hail Mary
and started spraying...three or four thin coats later, I was happy.
I even painted the cloth shades, a bronze craft paint on the outside and gold on the inside.
The gold paint I bought from Home Depot, I've used
for many things...but that's another story. I'll get the pic's.
This is a great DIY job. I have tried to spray this product on the lining of my closet doors to get the same type of look you were going for, but did not have the same result. I need a little more practice working with spray paints because I tend to complaint about the cost of the good stuff.

Hi Kacee, Yes, it takes some practice to get it right. I was lucky though,
on our Chandlier, I think.

Here is all the all the frames freshly painted with a combo of hammered bronze and gold leaf.
When I put the light on, it lights up the paintings
beautifully, but it's hard to photograph cause the light glares in the
photo...

These are among our favorite paintings that the Head Knots Dad
painted. He especially painted a couple of dozen paintings for me through
the years...The two on the left were painted in the early to mid 1940's

The two on the right were painted in the late 1970's. This is a perfect place for them
as they are across from our sofa and my chair, so we can enjoy looking at them all the time.

Having said that, I could remove one of the paintings on the right and
put it by my desk (in the same room) and spread the remaining three
out? any feedback appreciated.

Personally, I like the picture from 2008. I tend to space out my pictures a little more for some symmetry, but I am no interior decorator. The thing I love most about DIY projects is that art is always subjective. I love how you have all the pictures over the TV, since the TV is usually the centerpiece of the room these days.

Thanks Kacee, Your comment about liking the 2008 set-up better
prompted me to get the ladder back out.
Here is what I came out with...The lake painting I moved next to
my desk.
