How To Paint A Chandelier The Lazy Girl Way
Welcome to my second “Lazy Girl Way Post”! My first was fancy window trim the lazy girl way & I think some days there’s a lazy girl in all of us. I am a big fan of a little paint TLC & a firm believer that a light fixture can add tons of character to a room. I get a lot of messages from yall about how to properly paint a chandelier. So I thought I would tell you how I do it. Possibly not the proper way, but its the easiest way & I always love the result so its the right way for me!
- Chandelier or Any Light Fixture
- Spray Paint
- Saran Wrap
- For the Room Renovation: Office light fixture, I decided I would upgrade a chandelier I got from my local thrift store for $15! I started by taking all the crystals off to throw into the dishwasher (no judgment this is the lazy girl way remember ; ) ).
- After I had the crystals & light bulbs taken off I brought it to my super official/professional painting table outside! Don’t mind my assistant looking adorable.
- Next, is the lazy girl trick part. You don’t want to get spray paint inside the part where the light bulb goes, so I slid off the covers & wrap saran wrap around the electrical part. Then, I simply slide the covers back on & I’m ready to go!
- Finally, I usually do 2-3 coats of spray paint, be sure to flip it over once dry & get it from the bottom. You could always hang it off of something & paint it also.
