Stunningly Beautiful Modernized Rose Chandelier

One of my favorite things is finding something broken and discarded and making it beautiful. I discovered an old chandelier in need of lots of love. At first glance I thought it was fairly busy and unattractive, but the metal roses and leaves particularly caught my eye. I decided to buy it and give it a quick spray paint makeover. I shocked by how beautifully my re-purposed chandelier turned out, it will be a gorgeous focal point in my kitchen and dining room for years to come.

To update the look of this metal rose chandelier, I started by removing the tear drop light bulbs. Not my style.

I then gave the whole chandelier a coat of mint green spray paint. I protected the metal roses by putting cones of paper around them, and then sprayed away.

It took 2-3 coats of green spray paint to entirely cover all the details of this metal chandelier.

Next I painted the roses a warm pink color. The pink paint is a gorgeous contrast against the mint green chandelier structure. Finally, I added some color variation by conservatively brushing on a slightly darker green paint onto some of the leaves. I installed round bulbs as a modern finishing touch.

This modern rose chandelier has been in my kitchen for more than a year and I still love it. It matches the cheerful green accent wall in my kitchen and the pink coordinates with some of the other accent color palettes in my home. I hope you are inspired by my re-purposed metal rose chandelier makeover! I'm sure some may have preferred the original style, but my updated chandelier colors much better fits the decorating style of my home.

    Thank you for the feedback! We've used this chandelier in two houses now and I still love it! Repurposing home decor is so much fun.
