I have a chandelier just like this and may consider spray painting next spring. In the mean time I purchased some tiny shades from Walmart and applied them to the lights. Looks like a whole new piece, but I can see how spray painting it will add a lot more appeal. Thanks for sharing. [?] Colleen@Lilac Drive Desig... Meridian, ID Thanks Gail! I have black shades for this chandelier but took them off for now. I do like the way the shades soften the light, so I may end up putting them back on eventually. [?] Nena Lynn Greenville, SC I know this is an older post but I just came across it! GREAT JOB! I did the same thing with a tacky brass fixture in a bathroom when we were getting our house ready to sell. I got so many compliments on the oil rubbed bronze finish....and I just smiled and said it IS pretty isn't it?? In the new house, we have the exact same chandelier as you in all it's brassy glory. I'm glad to read your tip about the automotive primer...that's a keeper! [?] [?] Advertisement Metallic Furniture Just lighting wood kisses Front Door Paint... DIY Lamps!
