I was shopping with my daughter at Lowe's several months ago when I spotted this chandelier. It was on clearance for $30 and they had about six of them boxed up and stacked in the center of the aisle.
I got so excited that as I was trying to lift one of the boxes off the stack I knocked the display chandelier on the floor! The store employee was so nice as he picked it up, reassured me that I hadn't damaged it at all, and put it back on the stack.
But the whole thing flustered me enough that I didn't realize that I should get two! Also, my daughter had walked away quietly like she didn't know me. Ha!
I layered on a beige paint with chalk additive and then a white chalk paint, giving it the chippy look I wanted. I'm always surprised how well chalk paint adheres. I didn't do any prep work - just painted it.
I then added tear drop crystals and a chain of crystals - all from Save-On-Crafts. I keep a supply of these around for whenever I need to bling something up.
It doesn't even look like the same chandelier. And I got it for $30!
love and blessings~
