Okay….so ALMOST everyone has had one….these cast metal chandeliers! But this little beauty is gonna have one of my famous paint treatments.
I just absolutely LOVE them! The brassy coloring is NOT always to my taste though….I usually paint them cream, white or black…if they are tiny they sometimes go pink or another fun color. One of my favorite lighting projects is my black chandelier.
This week I decided to verdigris this this stunner that I came across…..man was it ever a pain in the pa-toot-i….but WOW! After this little darling received one of my painting treatments, she turned out stunning.
By taking some verdigris colored glaze, I antiqued right over the brass chandelier. Simply painting it on…and wiping it off with a soft cloth. By doing this, it leaves the glaze in the grooves and dents to get a cool textured finish.
I’m sorry….but this….is better than a man! Sorry Davie!
Would Y’all hang this in your house?
