Three arm chandelier

Picked up this three arm chandelier today in a charity shop for £2 I am not sure if it works yet as the lady in the shop couldn't tell me, I really hope it does as i have had a right faff painting it.   

 I painted the whole chandelier in "Original" Annie Sloan then added "Antoinette" in areas, after it had dried I then sanded the whole piece then waxed with clear and dark. Then decided I wasn't pleased with it so white washed it with "Original" again. Due to me waxing it prior I completely forgot that wax and water does not really mix so its hanging above the window this evening to dry out.


Its hard work painting pieces like this as its so fiddly and hard to reach those bits underneath. I will sand it tomorrow and clear wax the beauty. Please pray for me.....and hope that it actually works. Pictures to follow. Have a lovely evening.

  2. Thanks for popping by my blog!! Thought I would check out yours too! Looks like you spent a lot of time and effort on renovating that light fitting - I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it actually works!
