Five weeks ago, I brought home a thrift store chandelier because seven weeks ago I saw a DIY garden project on Tiktok.
This is it:
The project is to strip, paint and convert the fixture to solar lights for use as a garden chandelier. I known I wanted to use multiple colors, so I dismantled the fixture.
The inspiration and the concept sketch:
First round of paint: a bold base coat with Rustoleum spray paint:
Second and third rounds of paint: dry-brushing, first with color analogous to the base coat, second with a pale neutral for highlights:
Final round of paint: clear coat:
I am ecstatic with the results! More festive garden fixtures to come…
