A Little Bit of Sanity and A Lot of Chaos: DIY Yellow Chandelier

DIY Yellow Chandelier

People. Pe-ee--ple.

I'm giddy. I love when I get giddy over a project. LOVE.

The other day I mentioned painting my GW chandelier, that has been in almost every room of our house.

Because I am who I am, and have the patience of a gnat, I couldn't wait until our new fixture for this room came. And so, I moved the light to the dining room. AND painted it.

Yes, that's right. I moved it then painted it. If you've been reading for some time, I am infamous for painting fixtures while still attached. I turn off the electricity to that fixture, cover holes in the fixture, and plastic goes over everything. EVERYTHING. Floor included. Then, prime it, wait, spray it yellow. I used spray Kilz and Rustoleum Warm Yellow. It only took one can of each.

And, in about an hour - you have this:

Holy Bananas. I mean seriously. I love it. I am just so excited. It just adds such a fun little thing to our house. Most everything is white or gray, so this just brings in a bit of whimsy.

And of course, because I am who I am, I distressed it a little. I always get nervous doing it, but, I'm always glad that I do.

Dining Room is finished. Until I get to that trim. And change something again.

YEAH! Thanks for the push to get it done!

I haven't shared in awhile:

Go see what these talented painters can do!

I don't feel so scared of yellow anymore. Thanks.

I think it turned out great! I love that shade of yellow. Not too harsh at all. You have guts to spray while hanging. But I have to ask why you didn't do it while it was down?

So very fun and exciting to see. I am a fan of yellow if you have checked out my blog lately with the new design. Just a little goes a long way, and you rocked it!

I love it! I could never spray in place, I get spray paint on everything even with plastic. You are talented!

Love the yellow color, too!

Love your chandy! Gives me a great idea for doing the same thing - same color for my daughter. Just made her a new duvet and pillows in cream, gray and that yellow. Only one problem, I have to find one first to paint :)
