Remember the turquoise chandelier redo that I did a few weeks ago? It sat around here for weeks and my hubby kept asking when I was going to list it for sale. I just couldn’t decide what I wanted for it and I really just didn’t want to let it go. So I didn’t.
It is now hanging in my kitchen!
It was horrible for poor Topher to get that heavy thing up the ladder and hang it that high, but he was a trooper and did a great job.
I love it.
For everyone who has asked I the color I used was Rustoleum’s Seaside.
Now I just need him to paint my cabinets white and put in a new backsplash that has a little blue in it to tie it all together. He will be so excited to do that! (not). Anyway here are the new pics.
Turquoise Chandelier Makeover
It is gorgeous! Reminds me of one I got at GW for $10
And Tuck hung it in the guest room. It is the same color! These are the good memories…when the hubby’s. Go above and beyond! 😀
WOW! That really is beautiful! I have one sitting on the floor in the spare room that could do with such a beautiful makeover!
Lovely! I would love to see the entire room!
Wow, what a great makeover! Love it!
Beth H. says
Beautiful!!! Love the color too. I’m assuming it came w/all the crystals and such??? Or did you add those yourself afterward?
Beth- The crystals came with it. My hubby volunteered to take the crystals off for me. I asked him to take a before picture for me since there were so many different sizes of crystals. He forgot. It took me two days to get them back on correctly since there was 7 different sizes!
Wow! I am now on a mission for an ugly chandelier. Lol
This is fabulous! I have a question: Where did you find the crystal parts? I have one I am waiting to redo, and I would love to doll it up like this.
This one came with the crystals. I did do one for my daughters room that I needed extra crystals and I think I ordered them from crystals.com. I can’t promise that was the site but I think so.
It turned out just gorgeous!!!
And hawk eye that I am I’m also in love with the little birdcage in the background ( painted the same color I think? )
Good eye Suzan! Yes that is exactly the same color. It used to be black but I wanted it work with the chandelier.
So what’s the name of the blue you used? It looks great with the sparkle of the crystals. Love it!
Thanks Misty! I used Tropical Oasis by Valspar.
Donna Wilkes says
Stunning transformation. I would not have let it go either!
Crunchy Diva says
Love it! And I love the color. I blogged about a lamp I did in a similar shade earlier this month and I’m working on chandelier right now! Your touch with the crystal bling is extraordinary.
I just checked out your lamp and it turned out great! Can’t want to see your chandelier!
Beautiful transformation, Shanna!!! Wow!
Ellora @ Creatively Southern says
This is beautiful!! Amazing transformation and I love the color! I found this over at Better After.
Sandra @Beneath this Roof, Within these Walls says
Judging from the before pics, I have to say that chandy was one of the–er, shall I say, —most interesting ones ever. It is beautiful now, an amazing makeover, love that color!
Oh so Fabulous!
Debi @ Adorned From Above says
This is really beautiful. I love it. I have a link party from Wednesdays through Sundays and would love to have you share this with everyone. It is Wednesday’s Adorned From Above Link Party. The link to the blog is http://www.adornedfromabove.com
Stopping by from Coastal Charm to see this lovely chandelier! I need to go back to the post to see how you made it over. Not sure I could sell it either. I am wanting one for our master bedroom makeover and trying to get ideas of what I can do with a craigslist find! Thanks for the inspiration!
Can one be in love with a chandelier? Yours is absolutely beautiful. Love the transformation, the color, the additions. Great job.
Looks fab! I’m keeping my eye out for one to hang in my kitchen too! I love how it looks

It’s very pretty…
I bet it looks great against the white ceiling….
I have a question: how did you attach all the crystals, and where did you get them?
Can’t blame you for keeping it!
It’s gorgeous… 🙂
Andrea at Opulent Cottage says
Your chandelier is amazing! The turquoise paint brought out all of the yummy details in the piece that didn’t really show before. No wonder you didn’t want to sell it, it’s gorgeous!
Anne Dees says
This is gorgeous, just amazing what a little paint will do.

Linda Leyble says
Hi – found you via Liz Marie blog. I have a project on there as well (mini Mora Clock Re-Do).
I was given a similar chandelier (ugly brass) – and I am revamping it for a client. I am usually very good at primimg and painting anything – I sanded it and I primed it in oil vased primer but there are a fe spots where th paint is still showing through (just little specks but this will be seen mostly from underneath (it’s going in a stairway/hallway – above the stairs)so the specks are showing up on the bottom mostly.
I am going to treat them also with Faux Effects PrimeEtch, which I have had success with before – this etches the surface of anything and allows you to paint right over with no problem.
What else did you use to get the paint to stck?
Thanks…great look, great project!
OMG I love your chandy! That was such a brilliant idea and it turned out so beautifully. Thanks for sharing!
Clydia @ THREE MANGO SEEDS says
Um wow! I ♥ how this turned out! Would you please ship it to me? It would go great in B’s new room! Ha!
Absolutely! I’m sure my hubby would love to climb up there again and hoist this monster down!
Suzie @ Dorothy Sue and Millie B's too says
Amazing!!! I’ve been looking for one of these high and low at Garage Sales, GW and thrift stores…. I shall find one and make it my own before this summer is over….lol!!!
Thanks Suzie! Good luck!

Thanks so much Helen! I will have to come check your party out!
What a great transformation! LOVE the color! Saw you over at Fox Hollow Cottage, so I had to come over and see more! Life to the full! Melissa @ DaisyMaeBelle
I have seen A LOT of painted chandeliers out there and they are all very pretty, but yours is a total WOW! I am in love and can totally see why you would not want to let that go! Just gorgeous. I’m here from the DIY party and now I am going to have to poke around your blog to see if you painted the kitchen! 😉
Thanks Kim! I wish I could tell you that the kitchen is painted but sadly with all of my custom pieces for clients, I haven’t had time! Maybe next year!
Krista @ the happy housie says
Wow, she sure is a stunner now!! What a fabulous revamp! Thank you so much for linking this up at the Get Your DIY On Fall Challenge: Spray Paint. We hope to see you come on back over this evening (7pm EST) and bring along a chalkboard project!!

Christy@ Confessions of a Serial DIYer says
Shanna, I am in LOVE with your chandelier and if you lived closer, you seriously might find it missing lol! I’m featuring it at tonight’s Get Your DIY on Fall Party Challenge. Come by and grab a button and I hope you’ll be joining us again for spray paint week (this would have been perfect!). Krista mentioned chalkboards but that’s next week..we’ve been working furiously on our chalkboard projects so she’s probably got that on the brain lol. Hope to see you again tonight, I love all that you do! 🙂
Thank you so much Christy! I got a ton of traffic from you site this week, so thanks for that! I did link up again! Have a great weekend!
For those ladies that are looking for a chandeleir similar to this..try Habitat for Humanity store. There are usually a lot there..Do you have a tuitorial how you restored this?
Just found you through the throwback thursday link. (Brilliant idea BTW).
The turquoise that you have used is lovely (and I also love the little colour matched birdcage). Fab job.
Thank you so much Diana! I am definitely a lover of all things turquoise! Hope you’re having a great weekend!
Great chandelier. Found you on Throwback Thursday!!
Thanks Denise! I love anything with a little bling!
Joselyn @The DIY Spot says
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. I would never had thought that shiny gold chandelier could look so good!
Thank you so much Joselyn! Happy New Years to you!
Dianne Vaz says
This is perfect. I have a chandelier hanging in my dining room that has been begging to be painted. I love the turquoise but my hubby is not quite as adventurous as I. Do you mind if I link this post to my blog? http://behindthepainteddoor.ca
Do you sell this turquoise chandelier ?
Hi Shanna, I’m attempting my own chandelier makeover. Did you have to remove the electrical/socket elements in order to remove the glass?
This might be perfect in the magenta and turquoise,+another color that I haven’t chosen yet, bedroom that I commented about regarding an older dresser you painted red. Though I won’t use the same shade/tone of turquoise. It will be much lighter. After all, it has too work with, not clash the blue “southern porch” ceiling.
