Upcycle Chandelier

Do you have an old chandelier that is full size or maybe a sweet little one like this? No matter the size, condition, or color, you can transform it to match your decor with Tattered Angels Paints.  There is something for every texture and finish in your chandelier and the end result will surprise you. Crew Member Valerie Andrieux shows us how it is done.

I found this miniature chandelier in a flea market and immediately thought about upcycling it with the Tattered Angels paint.

Tools Used:  paint brushes
Tattered Angels Paint Choices For Upcycle and Decor Projects:
Stained Glass – sheer paint, perfect for crystals, glass and plastic – leaves object tinted, but it is translucent
Glimmer Glam – sheer paint with glitter, perfect for any surface and the glitter dies into the paint with no mess – we have even painted to top of a dress for a little girls room, so great and it makes a terrific top coat.
Glimmer Mist – stain wood and other porous items.
Glimmer Glaze – detail paint with a bit of dimension
High Impact Paint – metallic or pigment color, these paints will cover any surface and level to a beautiful finish
Decor & DIY Paint – matte finish paint similar to chalk or milk paint, will cover virtually any surface with no sanding and no priming.
All paints are non-toxic, soap and water clean up and work beautifully for your creative needs.

Step 1 – Paint the chandelier with the DIY paint, using a small brush.

Step 2 – Paint all the glass pendants. Hang it to dry.  You can also dip them in the paint.  Try Stained Glass if you do not want the glitter.

Step 3 – Add flowers by winding the stems around the chandelier. You can use a flower with stem to hang the chandelier.  If you are updating a full size chandelier you can use silk flowers or make your own paper or tissue flowers.

So if you see an old chandelier that needs a little lovin’, grab it and some Tattered Angels paints and transform it into a work of art.  If it is a miniature or the candles don’t work, no worries just make it an accessory. If the mechanisms work, hang it in just the right place and plug it in or wire it up.  Beautiful.
