How To Makeover A Chandelier In Farmhouse Style

Here’s an easy DIY tutorial on how to makeover a chandelier in farmhouse style.
I am in the process of making over my dining room in farmhouse style, and the chandelier just wasn’t cutting the mustard anymore.
Here’s the list of stuff I used to do this makeover:
Bulbrite NOS60-VICTOR 60-watt Incandescent Nostalgic Victor Loop A19 with Medium Base, Antique – 4 Pack
3 Efine Replacement Lofe Minimalist Vintage Industrial Hanging Lamp Cage shade for Pendant Lamp E27 Metal Opening and Closing Lamp Guard Black
Deco Art Americana Chalky Finish Paint, 8-Ounce, Relic
Wire cutters
I painted the ceramic lightbulb sockets with the Deco Art Americana Chalky Finish Paint in Relic to blend in better with the rest of the chandelier.
I had to snip off the rings with a pair of wire cutters for the shade cages to fit over the ceramic lightbulb sockets. The wire cage easily contracts around its top, so all I had to do was put them over the ceramic lightbulb socket and gently squeeze it to clamp it down on the top of the ceramic lightbulb socket. It fits and holds securely.
I gotta say; I really liked how it turned out! :)

    Love this! Very creative! I have a question, does chalk paint have an odor? Maybe it's a silly question I've never used it and want to paint some things this winter in the basement, thanks!

    Could you do this with lights that are facing up?
