I want to start out by saying how much I hate brass! This old 90's style brass chandelier was here when we moved in and I know it had to be a builders choice (since my house was built in the 90'..) I didn't want to go out and buy a new one right now so.....DIY of course! I did this in about 30 min tops and I did it still hanging here. Believe that! I started off by taping off everything from the ceiling, and draping old sheets EVERYWHERE. It looked like an old abandoned warehouse in the kitchen. Next, I took off the glass globes and put them in the dishwasher for a good dusting. Dishwashers work wonders. Then started spray painting it with Krylon Silver Metallic paint. I took an old magazine and put behind the parts I was painting for more control over the mess. It worked.
Here is the rims around the globes that I took outside and painted.
