$5 Dining Makeover

10:24 AM

BEFORE:
Our dining room had a ceiling fan as the main light source.
We’ve never used the fan, and it just seemed weird above our eating space.IMG_1199
I found this brass chandelier at the thrift store for $5.
With a wash, primer, and oil rubbed bronze spray paint, we have an actual light fixture that’s a chandelier and has more light with two more light bulbs.

  2. Yes! I agree. Ceiling fans are totally weird over an eating space. My husband thought I was crazy when I told him we needed to change kitchen light fixtures for that reason. Yours looks awesome, and you can't beat the price.
