A few months ago I did a project making an ornament chandelier for my laundry room. While great in theory, I wasn’t really in love with the end product. But it was better than a bare bulb, so I kept it. Yet the fact that the one bulb made the room very dim was getting hard to ignore. So while we were on a trip to the Habitat ReStore getting doors to turn into coffee tables, I saw this $15 chandelier and had to snag it.
I really loved the modern look, even if the wood + dark brass was a little off-putting. A few coats of metallic silver spray later and it was a very modern looking light!
It’s such a big difference to have the laundry room that much brighter. I chose 40 watt bulbs since I didn’t want it overwhelming, but I can always upgrade to 60’s if I need a little more light.
See what I mean? So much better. And not bad for less than $20! They had a ton of chandeliers to choose from too. I’m toying around with replacing the curtain with a drop cloth and painting the hutch white to make the room even brighter. What do you think? Do you like the black, or should I whitewash it all??
