A Shabby Chic Style Chandelier

This chandelier had great bones and thought it would look great with a cottage style makeover. I rewired it so it can easily be plugged in  to any wall outlet. I painted it pink, distressed it and added five shades, each wrapped in a different cottage style floral fabric and trimmed in fringe. This project was so much fun!

CleverThinker writes: Nice job on this one! Welcome to the website! I know the feeling of 'coming home' when you find that there are others just as inspired by the unseen, and maybe just a little twisted. There is always safety in numbers!

Keep it loose...and keep going!!
