Now this is a quick little upcycle project that I did a while ago for my daughter’s room that I wanted to share. A while prior to even thinking of redecorating her room, I went to a local flea market and found this very simple hanging candle holder that had a bright color blue to it. Now it wasn’t ideal but I thought it was cute and new I could do something with it. So I bought it and thankfully it wasn’t that expensive.
Of course, I had it stored away somewhere in the house not knowing what would be its purpose but I had it. Until it dawned on my while I was redecorating my daughter’s room. I wanted her room to look nice and grown up since she was about 14 almost 15. I wanted something pretty and elegant. There was not particular theme in mind to her room. We went with the colors grey and rose gold. She really loved those colors. We also added some wall decor items that were of arrows and feathers. Really cute!
To add something extra and nice to the room, I created a faux mini chandelier from the hanging candle holder that I had.
Now I am a less is more kind of person so I didn’t go too crazy in the “chandelier” idea. What I did was I spray painted the holder with a bronze color spray paint with the texture in it. I got the spray paint at a local hardware store. I know it’s hard to tell here with the lighting not being that great. I was able to cover the blue on the holder so you can’t see it. I then purchased the crystals that you see hanging. (I honestly do not recall where I purchased these, but I did find them online.) It was great because the crystals came in long chains so I was able to play around with lengths that I needed to create the look I was going for. It was easy to take apart the chains to the desired length using needle nose pliers. I was able to hook the crystal chains onto the candle holder to make this look.
Even though I didn’t add any kind of light fixture to it (hence the name faux chandelier), I thought it gave the room that touch of elegance. I hung it up on the ceiling in the area where there is a dormer. It’s right above my daughter’s desk. I think it turned out cute. My daughter loves it as well and the bonus was that it was inexpensive. If I recall correctly, I think it was around $25 to make this. Of course it’s been a while so I don’t remember the exact amount.
So I hope you enjoyed reading this quick little project that I did a while ago. I really enjoyed doing it and hope to do more fun projects like this one.
