I absolutely loved this makeover project. This huge chandelier (this is the before picture of course) was in our house when we first bought it three years ago. It is BIG and it is GOLD / brass. Not exactly meshing with the rest of the decor around here. We have cathedral ceilings when you first walk in the house through the front door and this is the first light you see. I originally thought we might buy a new one, but when I started looking at chandeliers of similar size and with some crystals – we are talking a couple thousand bucks for a light. Not exactly where I wanted to spend that kind of cash. I did a full makeover of this chandelier for probably around a hundred dollars once you factor in the paint and crystals. Not bad!!
