Feeling Blue (My Turquoise Chandelier )

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 Valspar’s Tropical Oasis.

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.

    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! :D

      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!

      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.

    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.

    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!

    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… :)

    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!

    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!

    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! :)

    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.
