My very own before-and-after!

Monday, February 22, 2010

Remember I was redecorating?  Well, it is coming along quite nicely.  It's not finished yet, however.  I know you are all waiting with bated breath to see the finished before and afters.  Hold your horses.  We'll get there soon enough.

But, here is one of the most exciting transformations yet!  With two bottles of $3 spray paint... voila!... something ugggg is turned into something fabulous (so sorry if you are one of the five people in the world who prefer these brass chandeliers to something actually pretty else).


Who needs Design Sponge when you've got Tales of Me and the Husband!?! 

I almost can't even write that with a straight face.

  7. haha you're so funny! I LOVE this before and after. I think the chandelier looks so good and I'm jealous you have such a cute one. Matthew found one that looks like it belonged in King Arthur's court.. It's cool in it's own right but now what I'm looking for!

  8. I'm with you all the way, hate the brass, but this? This is beautiful! AND AND AND...why would it have to be just chandeliers? I see multitudes of brass knickknacks at thrift stores for a song all the time... How about a herd of (formerly brass) red elephants? Endless possibilities...

    What kind of paint did you use?

    xox,

    p.s. thanks for stopping by my blog, and for your kind words - I hope you'll be back!
