This week we’re excited to share our DIY Chalk Paint Chandelier tutorial. We couldn’t be more excited about how it turned out. You might have seen a sneak peek of it last week during our DIY Farmhouse Coffee Bar post. This was the easiest DIY ever. The hardest part is finding someone to hang it up for you if you don’t have a handy husband.
We started by purchasing the chandelier at the Dallas Area Habitat for Humanity Restore in Garland. ReStores are nonprofit home improvement stores that engage the community with on-site donation and volunteer opportunities. Locally owned and operated, 100% of the profits support Dallas Habitat’s mission to revitalize neighborhoods through the anchoring hope of affordable home ownership. We couldn’t be more proud to support this organization.
Many would see no hope for that $10 brass chandelier on the ReStore shelf, but we knew how beautiful it could be with a little paint and love. We used Rust-Oleum Chalked Ulta Matte Paint in Aged Gray from Home Depot. We didn’t use a fancy brush or anything special. We just took this chalkpaint and brushed it on the chandelier.
It took some time to get the little creases and some we couldn’t reach well until we hung. Lucy’s husband is pretty handy and was able to hang it up, but it should be pretty inexpensive for your local electrician to hang. Then once it’s hung you can spot check with the paint one more time.
How pretty does this kitchen nook look with this fixture?! If you try this DIY or one like it make sure to tag us on instagram @ShopFarmhouseLiving and use the hashtag #FarmhouseLiving.
