New Life For An Old Chandelier

Who doesn’t love a fabulous chandelier? I recently found this post from a fellow blogger that introduces an interesting new way to incorporate ornate light fixtures into your décor: Painted Chandeliers!

It’s a little adventurous but why not try it? Beautiful and elegant chandeliers are always featured in our monthly estate auctions, and at reasonable prices. More importantly, the items we offer at Kaminski Auctions are more unique than any object you will find at a big-name catalogue store.

Here are a few examples from recent sales:

As this blogger suggests, try spray-painting the chandelier to add a pop of color to any interior space. And if you are looking for something subtler, you can certainly achieve a similar effect without making the chandelier the centerpiece of the room.

Try a fresh white or another soft neutral color and experiment with different lampshades. Or, choose a shade within the room’s color family to tie your décor together. Chandeliers are a fun thing to incorporate into any room in your home—and think beyond the living room or dining room! Put one in your bedroom or make a statement with a wonderful painted chandelier in your front hall.

And if a chandelier is just a little too much for your space but you still think a colorful light fixture would be perfect, you could even spray paint a pair of simple metal sconces, like these that we sold at our June Estate sale:

Be creative: lighting doesn’t have to be just functional, it can be exciting and whimsical too.
