Chandelier Gets a Little Bling

I've been slowly chipping away at our master bedroom.  I've settled on a room of neutrals - creams, golds, with bits of blue.  I really love how soothing it is and hope that I stick with my plan before changing course.  When the seasons change, so does my decor strategy.  Does anybody else do this?

Over the weekend I finished a project that has been on the to-do list for a while.


We have a mini-chandelier in the master bedroom.  It used to be bronze and I painted it white.  White was OK for a while, but it was too cold.  Yesterday I gave it the gold Rub 'n Buff treatment.


I usually apply Rubb 'n Buff with my fingers, but the little crevices needed something more.  So I used an art paintbrush to get into those spots.


The gold gave the room a little more warmth which was exactly what I was hoping for.


That's what I did yesterday.  What about you?

  1. Beautiful! Definitely warms it up like you wanted!

    Yesterday, I went through a few boxes of old momentos- stuff my mom saved from school, old letters, cards and diaries, etc. It's quite entertaining but I'm looking forward to trashing most of it. :)

  18. So pretty! I have a white chandelier, also, I think this may be the idea I've been looking for. This is the first I've heard of Rub n Buff, though. Is the color just called gold? Thanks so much for sharing your beautiful home and ideas!
