This chandelier from the lampshade and also how I revamped an old brass chandelier that was hanging in my kitchen. So here's how I created this beautiful glamorous chandelier by using something old that I already had I'll show you how I went from this to something much more glamorous now. This was just kind of old and outdated and needed to go, but I didn't want to spend the four or five hundred dollars on a newer one. So what I did was, I went to Hobby Lobby and got myself two embroidery hoops, some polystyrene for the liner and that actually was ordered from a website which I'll link down below double-sided tape, scissors, and some bling, of course, and fabric of your choice.
And to start off what I did was kind of got a vision in my head of what I wanted to look like. So the first thing that had to go was that ball that big brass ball. It wasn't in a vision, and it was just kind of like extra, not really needed, so that came off pretty easily. I just unscrewed it and then screwed the final right back on there. I mean it fits perfectly, but there was a gap and I will share with you all what I did to kind of fill that in because the chandelier started looking a little skimpy and thin when I took that off and as far as the paint job. I didn't want to get into any electrical, so I painted it hanging and what I did was I sanded it first.
You know to make it rough because you can't just paint Brad's because it's so shiny, the paint won't really get here I mean since I was inside. I couldn't do separate paint, so it just took her paper towel and dab the nickel paint on all over and y'all have. To be honest, it was a tedious job, but I just stayed up there on that matter until it was done just kind of dabbing all over and getting the details to get this thing to where I wanted it to be, and, like I said I didn't want to get into any electrical, so it stayed up there and I did it on the ladder, but I got to say after all the work it finally came together.
This is the final after it was painted and it looked pretty good. So then, for that thin part in the middle, I just took some white plastic hangers to snap, the heads off of them because like I said it was kind of thin in the middle, just regular, plain old plastic handle hangers and took him outside and well-ventilated area. After I snapped the tops of them off and spray-painted those silver, I was able to spray-paint them because I was outside and matched them together. Kind of putting them together like a little design, because I was trying to create hoops or more of a design. So I laid them out just how I wanted them.
I think I ended up doing five or a total of ten more hoops tied to get them together with some jewelry wire and added the bling, and it kind of looked like this. So these are my little extras to go on the chandelier, see that's how I was able to achieve that middle part, giving it more depth and then on to the drum shape you just choose your fabric. Like I said I went with tobacco cloth. It looks a lot like linen and lay it out on the polystyrene mine was 74 inches and you all.
