On Craigslist someone was selling a chandy for only $5.
I had to take that poor baby home to fix up.
You can see that there is nothing special about it.
I have been wanting to try out the metallic spray paint.
Why not start on $5 project?
This is the primer and spray paint I used.
I really like Rustoeum spray paint. But it is just what is offered at the store that is closest to me. So due to convenience it may be what wins me over.
First I primed it.
At every angle.
It may not be a bad thing to do some yoga stretches before starting.
Then I sprayed the black metallic paint.
It looks so much better now.
Can you see the little specs of gold and silver in the paint?
It is really hard to capture it in a picture.
But those specs are what makes the paint job not look like a paint job, but like it has always been that color.
I painted our Dining room chandy a regular black rather then metallic and I am not pleased with it simply because it looks like it has been painted.
I tried to take a picture of a comparison of my dining room black chandelier and the metallic black one.
It is so hard to capture those things especially when you aren't a great photographer. But you can see the specs in this picture.
But wait I said there are two chandys in this story.
Here is the other one.
I got this one for free off of freecycle.
I decided to paint it the same black metallic color.
And tada! Here it is.
It came with these domes or big huge bowls with holes it.
I don't really like them. It is a little too much for me.
But it really doesn't matter what I think because these two chandys are going to be my first Craigslist flip!
So now I don't really have to think of a place to put these. I just need to think of making some money to go towards buying the boys some clothes in the upcoming consignment season.
I will be posting to these parties.
