Updating a Brass Chandelier with Spray Paint

At Homespun with Love, a dining room chandelier was getting a little too brassy for its homeowners.  “We looked for some time trying to find a reasonably priced replacement that would suit our decor taste, but try we did with no luck.”

The solution was to paint the old brass chandelier.  They started with a coat of black primer, followed by Rustoleum in Walnut, a dark brown.  The finishing touch was to install a ceiling medallion painted to match the light, an elegant addition.  The freshly painted chandelier looks like a brand new fixture!

  1. It’s so funny to see this post! I was just getting ready to go out and spray paint a free chandelier/light fixture hot pink that I plan to hang on our patio as a decoration for my daughter’s princess party. Love the total, awesome transformation!

  2. Thank you so much for the feature! :)

  3. Very nice. I was thinking at first, “Oh no, I bet it’s going to be painted turquoise.” I’m getting pretty tired of that color in the DIY blogosphere. This was a nice surprise.

  4. I am sorry if its my eyes again..but these look like two different chandeliers and I mean in style…not color…both pretty
