Picture of Update a chandelier
I refuse to hang some boring old globe fixture in any room of my house. We've thrifted and salvaged the coolest (I think) collection of chandeliers and light fixtures around. Here is a dead simple re-do of a dated 80's dangler.

Step 1: Find a fixture you like.

I found this one second hand for $5. It was a little dated looking in brass, but I thought it had good bones and didn't have too much fuss going on. I picked out my $6 spray paint in a vintage colour and took the glass shades off, gave them a scrub and set them aside.

Is this a spray enamel or acrylic paint? Or do you need a spray paint especially for metals?

It's enamel. I've never had luck with acrylic spray paint on metal.

It's very nice but I am most impressed at your use of the words "chuffed" and "chandy". What's the impact, if any, of spraying in the out of doors in the cold? I have a spraybomb that says not to use it in temps below 5C.

Spray outside and bring inside to dry.
