Thrift Store Chandelier Makeover

I've been on the hunt for a chandelier for Baby B's room for a few weeks now. In my noggin I knew exactly what I wanted. Problema? After scouring a few stores & on-line sites I wasn't having any luck finding this bad boy. Most chandeliers were either too feminine looking or way too costly.

What's a girl to do? Answer: Hit up every thrift shop in town and then some until you find one to makeover yourself!

So here is Miss Sassy Brassy before:

The deets:

I found the chandelier for $6.99 at Savers and after wiping all that "I-don't-want-to-know-where-you've-been-thrifty-dust" off of it I sprayed it down with Valspar's Cobalt Cannon spray paint.

The chandelier was missing the ceiling plate so I also picked one of those up for a few bucks along with some mini modern looking lampshades at Lowe's.

All together I spent about $35 to put this light fixture together.

Not too bad, if I do say so myself.

Oh, and here is the boring ceiling fan it replaced.

From blah to awe.....

Have I mentioned how much fun I've been having putting together this room?

I mean what will I do with myself once it's all done?

Oh yeah, raise a human being!

Makeover any thrifty finds lately?
