The Gardner Dining Chandelier - Before & After


Our quest to switch out our lighting in our new home continues. Above our dining table we had a polished silver plain old hanging light. I should have grabbed a before picture but got anxious to get our new one up! Photobucket

This chandelier is similar to the one we have hanging in the entrance of our home that we restored last week. However, this one was silver instead of brass. Photobucket

So with help from these little fingers we taped it off and painted the base white and added espresso highlights.Photobucket



Such an improvement! Woot. Woot.



Two down and three more to go.
