Avery's Room Part II

My shopping radar proved to be faithful yet once again. We went to Lowe's the other day for something for the yard and I thought that I would go and browse through the lighting section really quick. And there it was on clearance for $37, marked down from $180! Needless to say I was very excited! I begged the hubby for it and marched it to the check out!
I have been looking for a chandeleir for my daughter's room for some time and haven't found anything for less than $100! So this was a happy day for me! It wasn't exactly what I wanted, but I knew I could change that!
I don't know if you can tell in this picture or not, but the fixture is cream. I wanted white. And the shades are a bit ugly, but I figured I could change that too!


I painted the whole thing white with a stipple brush, decided to take off the shades, and sewed a long strip of material to cover the chain. I am quite happy with the results! It makes her room look so cute!
AFTER:Here is a cloese up of the chain cover

Close up of the detail!

More detail!

Before the flowers were taken off! Yucky!

Much better! I may reuse them and put pink flowers all over the whole shade. Or maybe just some trim on the top and bottom of the shade.


  1. I love it Shine! That is so stinking cute! I need some of that shopping radar, do you think you could share some of that with me?! :) We need to get together again after kids are back in school and settled a bit!

  2. That is totally cute! I need to borrow your creative brain to make my house pretty.

  3. Adorable! I love it. And what does lil miss Avery think of her room's new addition? :)

  4. I love IT!!!!! What a good eye you have, I feel like I have shopping radar to...I've been wanting a new shower head for the bath, so I waited a very long time, and bam I found one half price!!! I was thrilled... :0)
