Have you ever noticed how lighting can transform a space? From floor lamps to table lamps, overhead lighting to chandeliers, picking out the perfect lighting can sometimes become a daunting task.
Add budget into the mix and you may find yourself in a bit of a pickle. That’s where DIY and upcycling can help bridge the gap of finding that perfect lighting without paying an arm and a leg for it.

I then hung the chandelier on a shepard hook before spray painting it in Rustoleum’s Meadow Green. *If you plan to add crystals to the area around each light you will want to drill your holes before painting. Again, see my blog for the full tutorial.
