When I spied this brass chandelier at a garage sale my heart went "pitter patter". The owner still loved it but was ready for an updated light fixture in her dining room.
It was a bit tired and outdated.
I carefully dismantled the chandelier, taking all the crystals off and soaking them. Then scrubbed each and every one with a toothbrush. I sorted them all out on a towel, counting to make sure I could create a balanced look as I put them back on the chandy.
Then I taped off any areas I did NOT want to paint.
