Brass Chandelier Makeover

I have been wanting to paint our chandelier for quite some time now. Actually I wanted to completely replace it, but to be budget-conscious, I decided to add some shades and paint it. I didn't take any before pictures, but here is what it pretty much looked like...

I got these lampshades from eBay. They are great because they are adhesive, so you just cut out paper or fabric and stick it on. Just peel off the backing, and use that as a stencil to trace and cut your paper/fabric.

Added some paint...

Tada~....a new chandelier!

The wall in the background was something I DIY'ed too. I used this stencil and this paint to get the look of wallpaper, but without the high cost.

Anyway, back to the chandelier. I'm happy with how it turned out. Here is the before/after. :)
