I have been wanting to replace the ugly light in my girl's room for a looong time.
So I headed to my local thrift store and picked up this beauty of a chandelier for $4. No I'm not crazy. I just worked my magic on her.
First job was to get rid of those ug.a.ly orange light covers. I found five of these mini lampshades at GW for 50 cents each. I had my daughter paint them white before I covered them in fabric because the brown showed through the fabric.
Next step. I painted the entire fixture heirloom white. I didn't like it. I decided the plain straight wood piece in the middle just wasn't pretty. The entire thing looked too plain. So I went through the $1 box of furniture legs I picked up last summer and decided to replace the middle part of the chandelier with a "fancier" one. It was the perfect height. Of course the leg had to be drilled all the way through for the wires to go through. Then I sprayed the entire thing "Ballet Slipper Pink."
I sewed a pink satin cord cover and added crystal pieces I got at Target after Christmas for 50 cents each.
SO WHAT DO YOU THINK!!!
I'm missing a light bulb on the far left (only had four). So the shade is sitting lower than the rest.
And here is a picture of my girl's room last fall. I hadn't quite gotten all of the polka dots done around the top. I picked up the two antique twin beds at a yard sale several years ago for $25 for both.
Now the bedroom is complete with the exception of replacing the door and closet doors.!!!!!
