I think its an excellent idea. I did it in my last home – a shiny glossy black over my dining room table, and I think I will more than likely do it to some scale in this new LA rental………
Talking about replacing light fixtures with spray painted brass chandeliers from the thrift store. An easy find, and a good idea for renters, especially if you don’t break your landlord’s piece that you are gonna stash. It is a great way to replace some lacking style with your own cheap trick for the temporary.
I’ve created this AWESOME photoshop sketch to map some ideas for my new tiny kitchen.
As I plan a rental version of an update, I am wondering if a kinda tiny interesting chandelier is what needs to hang above the sink??? I like the idea of the ornate fixture being in a less expected location – rather than the trad placement over the dining table. Can you envision it here?
Eh.. I’m not totally sold…. just thinking of options…. Meanwhile, take a look at this great collection of spray painted chandies. (an image that i grabbed directly from Apartment Therapy). Yay!!
