French Curves



This lovely antique chandelier was covered with grime when I found it in a small local shop. Made of wrought iron and 36 inches in diameter it was very heavy and quite sturdy, with lovely, graceful lines. However, the paint was peeling and it needed new wiring. I almost left without it.

After cleaning and rewiring, I painted it in layers with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, using Old Violet, Louis Blue, Paris Grey, and Graphite.   Gilding wax was used for the gold accents.
One of my most satisfying and successful projects.
