I've been pretty busy preparing things for Easter! My sister is visiting and I want to have everything ready so we can have plenty of time to go shopping and shopping! yeah, that's why she is coming, well besides checking on her ol' sista!
I'm trying to give my dinning room a springy feel. That's a room we don't use that much, that means I don't see it everyday, so I try not to bother with it that much! There are lots of things I want to do to it but they can waaaaait!
Ok, back to the Springy feel I want to give to it! Do you think this Chandelier says Spring?!
I hope so! because that's what kept me busy most of the weekend!
First, let's go back to what I had; this beautiful brass chandelier was not inspiring any more!
But then, like two years ago, I couldn't stand it any longer.. and I painted it black!
Well, some how the room felt sad! I need to change the chandelier but before doing so I wanted to give it another look, for the season!
Once again, spray painting it!
When it was all painted, it looked like this:
Fine, right? but it needed some pizzazz! On my trip to the Dollar Store to get some Easter treats for the kids, the glass beads to fill vases got my attention instead! They had a good color assortment, and for one buck each! I gotta give them a try. I got three.
At home I kept thinking of a way to connect them to the chandelier? I still don't know what kind of glue sticks to glass? I checked Super Glue, nope, Liquid Nails, nope! I didn't want to go buy something expensive! The thing I had around the house that worked, was tape! Adhering the stringing to the bead.
Like this, placing the little pieces of tape on top of the bead string on the back of each glass bead.
I was afraid of the tape coming loose, so far everything is holding up! Even though I don't recommend you using this for a very long time! I'm going to have them there, later on I'll let you know when they begin falling!
