Do I sand? What kind of paint? How many coats? Do I use a wax coat and if yes, what kind?

    I'd clean it real good and then spray it with Rustoleum cream-colored paint. Two light coats are better than one heavy.

    Use chalk sanding needed. Spray with a matte finish poly or u can use the wax

    P.S. You can find many colors at Walmart for @ 6$ a jar :)

    For a chandelier, it will probably be easier to spray paint it instead of brushing it. Remove any crystals, etc and mask off any areas you don't want paint (wires, etc). Use a good quality rustoleum paint that will adhere to metal. Use several thin layers instead of thick layers for better coverage.
