I know... a lot of my posts begin with, "a friend gave me this ...", and this post is no different.
A friend gave me this old brass chandelier...
I took all the wiring and other parts out until I was just left with nothing but brass.
Then I gave it 2 coats of Dixie Belle paint in the color Barn Red.
I went over it with Dixie Belle's black glaze.
I put battery operated candles where the light bulbs used to go & I used a rope to hang it from the ceiling of my front porch.
It goes perfectly with my other red accents.
And, if and when my accent color changes, I'll just paint the chandelier again with one of Dixie Belle's other beautiful colors!
