I’m featuring a little something that’s not related to people photography, but a do-it-yourself project. Of course it includes pictures, so you can see the whole process.
Your first step to refurbishing a chandelier is to take it out of your home. Make sure you turn off your electricity before doing so!
Secondly you need to use some fine-grit sandpaper to buff down all of the smooth + shiny surfaces – in this case it was both wood + metal.
Stuff the light sockets with paper or tape over them with painters tape to keep any over spray out of the sockets.
Next – paint! Using a flat spray paint is usually your best way to go. We hung our chandelier in the garage and I used three coats of black flat multi-purpose enamel.
You can re-hang your fantastic new project back in your house within a few hours to a day!
