Need ideas for light fixture
March 19, 2013 in Design Dilemma
This fixture is in the dining room of an old house we bought. It will be replaced, but can I use it somewhere else? I saw a simple wrought iron fixture similar to this in a bedroom. Spray paint black? Remove the porcelain? Any ideas?

Hi sharbriggs! What to do w/the fixture depends on the decor of the room you want to place it in. Is this your current decor or is this a picture of the previous owners' furnishings?

Can you take a closer-up photo of the fixture?

Depending on the look you are going for you could spray paint and replace the bulbs with either an opaque round bulb or an industrial edison bulb. My friend has a similar chandelier painted hot pink in her daughter's room and with the white round bulbs it is very cute.

This is not my current decor. We are in the process of restoring a farmhouse (circa 1900). The previous owner redecorated in the 1950's. I'm considering using it in a bedroom or living room.

It might look good in black with shades over the candles. Is it too large for a bath or powder room?

In a farmhouse painting black with the Edison bulbs might give a rustic/industrial look

HI -- I would leave the chandelier the way it is but add some shades to the lights . They could be white silk or a linen or something in a frosted glass.

it has a nice shape. spray it bright or wite or oil rubbed bronze, whatever works with the room. beaded shades could be fun.
