Today, I wanted to quickly show you a couple of small DIY makeovers I did to the light and mirror in my Master Closet makeover.

First up is the light.

The room original had an ugly old ceiling fan.

I love ceiling fans, but I don’t like ugly ceiling fans, so it had to go! 

 

A couple of years ago, I bought this antique chandelier at a yard sale for $5 bucks.  {Well, I don’t know if it was really an antique, but it looked old, so we will call it that.  It makes it sound like I got a really good deal!} Smile  I kept it because I knew I would use it for something someday.

I could have left it alone and would have probably loved it, but I decided to have a little fun and spray paint it with some blue spray paint.  I didn’t even prime it because I knew it wouldn’t be getting any wear and tear from hanging up there from our ceiling. Smile

After Cy hung the light, I added some new white sleeve thingies that I bought at Lowe’s for a couple of bucks to the candle lights.

I love the punch of color it adds to the closet!

Next, I bought this old mirror at our local antique mall for $22.   I liked the shape and size of it, but not the color of the wood.

So I fixed that quickly by adding a couple coats of Annie Sloan chalk paint in French Linen, my favorite color.

So easy.  Smile

I really do love this mirror.  I also found that little wooden seat one the same day at the antique mall for $15.  Perfect!

And if you missed how we made my dressing table, you can read about that HERE.

In one week, I’ll be on a plane to Nicaragua!  I cannot wait to love of those precious children!  I covet your prayers.
