Metamorphosis Monday.....a bit of a clean up for a chandy!

Time for Met Monday!
So what you been working on, what you been redoing?
Be sure and stop by Susan's blog at,http://betweennapsontheporch.blogspot.com/ , to see her Met Monday post as well as
all the other bloggers who have been giving things a metamorphosis!

Here is the recent chandy I found for $35.
It is that newer shiny brass and it had a bit of pitting on it etc.
But it is real glass and real glass prisms etc., not plastic.
So well worth what I found it for.
And we all know you can't have enough chandies hanging around the house, right?
So I decided it needed a clean up and redo before I hang it.

Here it is with all the glass and prisms taken off.
Also with things I don't want painted taped over.
I plan to get different candle covers too or cover the ones on it with ribbon.

Now with all the prisms and glass pieces cleaned.
Freshly painted and ready to hang.....it looks like new all over again!
I sprayed it with American Accents Heirloom White.
Now to get hubby to have time to help me hang it.
I think it is destined for my doll room, it needs a bit of bling and more light in there.

LInda love the chandy! I have thought about painting the one that I have in the breakfast nook white. It was in the house when we bought it 4 with chandys!! I thought maybe I should try to keep things as original as I could being as it is 100 yr old house- after seeing yours I just may change my mind!!
