$5 Thrift Store Chandelier Makeover

1 Material
2 Hours
I have been wanting to replace our chandelier for a year now, but the one I had my eye on rings in at a whopping $300. For a light, that just wasn't in our budget. I visited our Habitat for Humanity Restore thrift shop and found the perfect chandelier. Since it was missing it's shades (which I didn't need anyways) I scored it for $5!
Here's what it looked like when I got it home. I have to say, the hubby did not have faith that this project was going to turn out, but keep reading because you'll soon find out it was transformed into the perfect farmhouse chic chandelier!
Rust-Oleum sent me two free quarts of their new chalk paint to sample. After a coat of chalk paint, this is what my chandelier looked like. I applied two coats of the Linen White chalk paint.
And for the finished product! This chandelier fits our farmhouse so much better than the original victorian chandelier that came with the house. To see exactly how I got this look, visit my blog by clicking the link below!
