Sometimes a great makeover is about embellishing, but often it's all about simplifying and stripping down. We actually had to flip back and forth between these before and after pictures to make sure we were seeing the same light fixture.
Ellie Snow of Mint took this standard brass chandelier from blah to super unique in just an hour with a can of black spray paint and new bulbs. We're completely impressed with how cool this transformation looks, especially considering the minimal time and money spent. With so many interesting bulbs available now and a veritable rainbow of spray paint colors available, we're itching to try this one ourselves. This would be a great makeover for a very budget nursery or chid's room.
