I decided to start out slow. I picked one of the brass lamps to revamp. It was quick and easy. A good wipe down and a can of Navy paint. This will in my guest bedroom. It matches the bedding;) I am waiting to paint the other lamp. I still need to decide on colors for my family room. Any suggestions??? I am thinking maybe greens or gray and red. What do you think? 1 down 11 more to go!!!

I have been wanting to makeover a fun Chandelier. I actually bought 4 different chandeliers, before I found the perfect one. After I got my new turquoise Chandelier up. I decided my pendant lights looked out of place. The very next weekend I found pendant lights at a garage sale. It was meant to be.
Pendant lights $10 and covers were $4 found both at garage sales
The big brass Chandy $8
New Kitchen lighting $36 total with paint

If you know me at all. I am an avid garage sale girl. 90 percent of my decor and clothing, comes from garage sale's. I found this lazy susan new in the box. That's right $4. Then went to lowes, and found this gallon of paint in the mis-tints for $5. Found out at check out it had a $5 rebate. So it was actually FREE. Stay tuned for more of my constant kitchen makeover.
