Spray Painted Chandlier

This is the first time I have checked out your thread, I was thinking, "a sprayed chandelier?", man was I wrong, it looks great, I am in awe. TK you and your husband are really talented, I wish I had checked in sooner. Thanks for shearing some of your fantastic projects.

Felt exactly the same way as you BigJim! It doesn't look as strong as I though it would, but it would be difficult to get right.

It's definitely a cheaper alternative to buying a new chandelier, but you'd need to be brave (and skilled) to do it.

Spray Painted Chandlier

Thank you Gentlemen, but it was a very easy project. (once you take
down the chandelier and hang it outside). You need to do a
light sanding first and do a few light coats of spray paint, allowing it to dy in between.
I also spray painted our wrought iron table as well as our brass light
in the bathroom.

This is another brass light, only this one we actually took down twice a year to polish it with Noxon.

We sprayed this after the chandlier, what a pleasure to just have to feather dust it.

The second pic is the wrought iron table base that belonged to
the heads knots Grandpa. It was in my secret garden for
years and years and one day I took a second look and a light bulb went off in my head.

I schleped it in and we made a walnut top for it, and then I designed
two small chairs that we made shortly after. I wanted to be able to seat
six people at the kitchen table, so that when the kids came over for a casual
meal - I wouldn't have to set up the dining room table.
this was in 2009.

This is the table from January 2009. I sprayed it black, since then
in December -- we sanded down the walnut top to refinish it, and also
re-sprayed the base in antique bronze -- cause I liked the antique bronze
color better than black.

The little chairs we made out of rift sawn oak (they have hinged
lift up seats - for storage) I stained the chairs to match the table.
The seat height on the small chairs are the same height as regular chairs.
I think these chairs were the hardest thing (woodworking wise) that we ever made.
