I am chasing my tail – the to do list is getting longer, and I’m constantly playing catch-up. All part of working for yourself and getting a new business off the ground, and I’m certainly not moaning about it, as things are going swimmingly well so far (touch wood!).
But this little blog has been suffering a bit – I certainly haven’t been here as much as I would have liked to, and I can’t see that changing too much over the next couple of months to be honest, what with work and two holidays coming up. So if you don’t mind, I’m going to let myself off the hook a bit, and while I’ll still post on here, it is likely to be more sporadic than you’re used to. I’ll still be on You Tube, so if you’d like to get notifications when I put up a new video, click the link in the right hand sidebar and subscribe to my channel.
Anyway, onto the subject at hand – today I wanted to show you a small change we’ve made in our dining room, to the chandelier. It was here when we moved in, and is obviously very expensive and good quality, but it just isn’t really to our taste – I’m not a fan of gold light fittings, and there are a LOT of them in this house!
So we decided to take it apart and spray it black.
Taking it apart was fine, if a bit fiddly – every single glass droplet had to be individually removed.
Spraying it was fairly easy, too – we used a spray can of matte black paint suitable for metal and heat proof.
Putting it back together, though? Ha – not so easy. I’m very glad I had the forethought to take photos of the different stages of taking it apart as without them, I’m not sure we’d ever have managed to get it back together!
But we’re really pleased with the finished product – and although we’ll probably replace it eventually when we get around to decorating the lounge and dining room, it’s much more in keeping with our taste now than it was previously.
What do you think? Yay or nay?
