Transforming Standard Brass Chandelier to French Crystal

Now that the dining room has been transformed, I wanted a lighter, French Crystal chandelier. After searching for a lovely, budget-friendly version, I decided to transform the standard brass chandelier to a silver, French crystal chandelier.
now transformed - the sliver painted chandelier compliments the lighter colors in my dining room - with the sparkle I wanted.
The before and after - from brass to French Crystal
The dining room has been transformed! From red to blue; painted furniture; new curtains and slipcovered pillows; reupholstered chairs; creamware dishes...the brass chandelier just did not compliment the look. The new sparkly, French Crystal chandelier fits the complete look of the French Country decor.
I transformed the chandelier with Liquitex Iridescent Silver Acrylic paint; crystal bobeches; crystals and crystal chains.
The lighter look to the chandelier now better compliments the whole room - transformed to a French Country decor look.
