I'm a little bit "before and after" obsessed lately. Maybe it has something to do with winter's melting away and Springtime's arrival, but I'm eyeing everything in my home with the urge to transform old to new. So when I ran across this lighting makeover, I gasped. Before and after is an understatement.

Susan Petersen of Freshly Picked turned an old flush mount light fixture into a stunning faux capiz shell chandelier with a whole lot of wax paper circles and an awesome tutorial from Brenna Berger via Design Sponge. Yesterday's post on overhead lighting pointed out how a stunning fixture can make a whole room, and this gorgeous chandelier is further proof. And because it doesn't require changing the wiring itself, we love how perfect this project is for renters.

Be sure to check out Freshly Picked for more details and photos.
