A few months ago, whilst browsing in the vintage home shop around the corner from the office where I work, I found this huge, beautiful chandelier. Although not really vintage (I’d say it’s about 10 years old), it was on sale for £45 and so I snapped it up. (You all know how much I love a bargain!) It was very grubby, but had all it’s glass drops, and I knew that with a bit of a re-spray I could make it look beautiful. The metal was very yellowy so I used this craft spray from B&Q in a soft off white to re paint it. (Tip – when spraying, always lay lots of dust sheets down as the fine paint mist drifts – and always do it in the garden, the smell is pretty strong!)
I had planned to have it put up in the craft room, but once I’d had the kitchen done, I knew it would look perfect in there. I added some of my pastel glass baubles, and some pink glass teardrops which I found at a car boot fair a few years ago for some whimsical prettiness.
I’m posting my February Styling The Seasons tomorrow – this month the wonderful people at Laura Ashley gave us some goodies to play with, so do pop back to see what I came up with!
