Eclectic chic chandelier

Months ago I purchased a brass chandelier for $5. It was one of those projects that sat and sat and sat. I finally decided to check it off the list! I can't find the before picture, so just envision ugly brass.

First I sprayed the entire piece black.


Next, I painted a few parts with an aqua paint. Once dry, I distressed the entire piece.

  3. Nice job! It looks great now! (I have no problem imagining how it looked in the 'before' stage)

    Have a great weekend!

  5. Would you let me borrow that chandy for a few years? It would look so great in my kitchen. Imagine the cost of trying to buy a custom one like that!? You are such a talented artist!

    p.s. If you let me borrow it, I promise I'll give it back someday. ;)

  9. This chandelier most be really vintage because it looks like it uses candles and not light bulbs. It could be put in a museum.
