Before. After.

I saw this on eBay. Pretty sad, right? So, of course, I yearned to bring it back to life. Sigh. Still, I hesitated. But then…see the arm just right of center? Was that SILVER peeking out from the dull gold spray paint?


Golly! Wow! Zounds! Geez!


And without shades.


The chandelier is 1920s and ideal for a home in the Colonial-Revival style.

And I feel pretty damn pleased.

    That little glint of silver has caught my eye on occasion too! I have found some great objects to bring home and restore the luster but your chandelier is a great find!

    Silver as in silver-plated??? Stunning! Wonderful restoration, Ross!
