before & after: light fixture

I've decided to start this rainy Monday off with an awesome {if I do say so myself} before & after. Please don't mind the instagram photos. They're all I could find since I did this project before I lost my phone on the NYC subway along with my pictures.

I needed a light fixture for our bedroom so I picked up one for $15 at the Habitat for Humanity Re-Store. It's just a generic brass one that is up in many apartments. We've even had this same chandelier in two of our old apartments.

I couldn't stand the way it looked but it had definite possibilities. 

I primed it {spray paint} and then spray painted it with a pink. And then added these amazing bulbs. 

Seriously the round bulbs change the whole look.

I love how it looks. 

I ended up putting it in the girl's room instead of our bedroom. Kate loves it. The pink perfectly matched the girl's door which I recently painted pink. I'll post a pic of that door soon.

Love a good before and after and the way spray paint transforms anything. Nice job!
