Almost Ready to Show The Completed Floral Chandelier

I have been working on changing the look of the chandelier in Emily's room since about July. I wrote about the initial stages here and here. I am working on getting better pictures of the floral chandelier which I completed a few weeks ago. It evolved over time with no real plan. Although the original fixture served as the skeleton for what I created, the entire concept took shape as I found some key items at Michaels and subsequently Jo-Ann's which opened a few weeks ago about ten minutes away.

I started with almost lilac-pink-like petals just like these green ones. These helped me create the flowers around the sconces. The green petals were used as leaves to shape the greenery below the flowers and around the metal rods over some wedding tulle I wrapped around to give it a softer, more natural look.

Then I was left with this little dilemma. I did not want to leave any metal exposed.

I found this DecoArt's Americana acrylic paint in an almost exact color to the leaves, Foliage Green, and decided this was the way to go.

Some of the other items I found more recently at Jo-Ann's was this trim - pretty daisies..

...and some Martha Stewart scrapbooking floral stickers similar to these but in white. I forgot to take a picture of the ones I had purchased, for some reason.

We are experiencing some grey, rainy days but the weekend should be sunny and I will work on some final daytime pictures (besides the nighttime ones I already have) to share next Monday, the 21st. I shall reveal the entire creation with a tutorial. Do stop by and take a look. Lights on!

  1. You are right about that - these dreary days do not fair well for photo opps. It was nice here in PA yesterday but today is damp, dreary, and rainy. Looking forward to seeing your new chandy all up and pretty.

  2. You could try some moss on those metal spaces rather then more flowers to give it a touch more green, more like nature. I can't wait to see your finished results!

  3. oooohhh- looks pretty! Can't wait for the final reveal!

  4. Oh my *LOVELINESS*!!! I cannot *wait* to see the full shot of that bad boy, it looks redonkulously cool! So absolutely perfect for a girl's room! Aren't you just full of good ideas! (c:

  5. Looking very good! Apart from the beautiful detailing, the colour is so pretty, especially when the light is on!

  6. The chandelier is looking very pretty! I can't wait to see the whole chandelier!


  7. This sounds really interesting!
