Kristaller Chandelier-hacking!

Materials: Kristaller chandelier, masking tape, spray paint, new shades and a little bird

Description: First I removed all the glass prisms and the bulbs.

And then I prepared it for spray painting, by masking the wire and inside where the bulbs had been.

I first spray painted with a primer, waited a couple of hours, and then sprayed again with the colored paint.

I bought three new shades and a little bird and put them on.

The lamp is hanging in my little son’s room.

    OMG! I’m in love.
    Now I want a little son my own, just to have a reason for such an adorable chandelier.
    Usualy I don’t like chandelier. But this one is so gorgeous without beeing as brummagem or frumpish and outmoded as all the other ones I’ve seen yet.

    A big *thanks* from Germany,
