Paris Gray Mini Chandelier


I was surprised to find the exact same vintage chandelier twice! remember the first one I found and painted turquoise (click here to see it)?  I bought the first one for $5 and this one was only $3 at a different yard sale.

I could not find the before pictures of the second chandelier, but since it is the same as the previous one, here is the picture of the first chandelier before I painted it turquoise.


It was just a plain, little, iron chandelier, when I found it.



This morning, as the sunlight was brilliantly filtering through the trees, I decided to take my finished, crystal chandelier on a nature hike down to the creek for a little photo shoot. 


I used Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Paris Gray to start the transformation.  I had already primed the chandelier before I bought the Chalk Paint, but I do not think there is a need to do that because Chalk Paint adheres to metal.  I used a little bit of dark wax over the Paris Gray paint to give the chandelier more depth.


I ordered 30 vintage crystals for a vintage chandelier I am redoing for my kitchen.  I had a few extra that I hung from the center of this mini chandelier.  I ordered the crystal strands from Gallery, which is the cheapest place I could find them online.  


I just love how chandeliers look hanging outside, from tree branches.

Wow! That is such a STEAL and to think you found TWO of the same at two different places! I love these and the smaller size!! Thanks for the lead on the crystals -- they ARE so expensive -- I'm going to head over and see what they have! You did such a great job on both of these!

Hi Amanda! I hope you have had a good week! :) I LOVE your sweet chandelier, and how inspired that was to paint it with chalk paint! It turned out so lovely, and I agree~ it looks beautiful hanging up from a tree outside! :) You have the best ideas, and I always love your projects!

Blessings,
Jenni

P.S. Oh, I meant to say how much I also love your plank ceiling I sometimes see in your pictures. They look so pretty! :)

Can you tell me please if you brushed on the ASCP or put it in a sprayer. I want to paint a brass chandelier for my friend who is expecting a baby girl and wanted to be sure I did it the correct way. Yours looks so pretty.

Thank you. Lin lbprich@bellsouth.net
