I guess you already know it : colors and i do not have a good relationship. I do love a colorful home when i see it, but i would not add color in our home. Except for the bedroom! That’s the one room where i experiment with colors. And after adding the colorful headboard and already having colored drapes i moved to the next step. The chandelier makeover!
I got this chandelier from my grandmother last year and spray painted it purple , in an attempt to match our drapes. It’s a colorful mess in there! To be honest i never really liked how the chandelier color matched everything else in the room. So, i painted the walls white and decided to give the chandelier a new look. And here’s were Fusion paints comes in! I have been reading a lot for this paint. And i have seen lots of beautiful furniture projects. And the Ceramic Green paint is so pretty! Don’t you agree? I got a tester (37ml) to try for my chandelier makeover. Fusion Paint is all in one. From foundation to finish. I did slightly sand the chandelier before painting though.
I applied 2 coats of paint, like Fusion Paint suggests. And after the very first stroke of paint on the metal i was excited with the result!
- There is no annoying odour!
- The paint runs smoothly and it is really easy to work with. I must say that although i used a cheap paint brush and not the ones proper for the Fusion paint the paint left no annoying strokes. For a larger project though i will get a proper Fusion brush!
- And last, but not least…a bit of paint goes a really really long way with a perfect finish! There is plenty of paint left, in my 37ml tester, enough for painting my small IKEA Vittsjo office!
Here’s the purple before:
And here’s the freshly painted after:
Now we need something for the wall above the bed!
After applying 2 coats of paint i used a top coat, although it is not necessary, just for adding some extra shine! Have you ever worked with Fusion paint? Did you love it as much as i did?
