Painted Chandelier Sleeves | Pretty Handy Girl

When you were perusing my holiday tablescape post did you see my fancy copper chandelier sleeves? My chandelier was looking a bit dingy with the aged yellowing sleeves. I decided to spray paint them copper for a new look.

To update chandelier sleeves, you can paint them any color you like.

Simply remove the light bulbs.

Lift the sleeves off.

Wash the sleeves off and dry them.

Then pick your favorite spray paint color and spray paint them. I used Rust-Oleum High Heat Ultra Enamel Spray – Aged Copper to paint mine.

That update was so easy, I might spray paint them again in a year. I’m thinking light blue or silver next time. What do you think?



Pin for later!

    I’m glad I discovered your website. You have so many great ideas! The candle sleeves on our chandelier are so old they are cracking. I never thought of painting them before. Thanks for the great idea. And greetings from a fellow Raleighite. 🙂
