I got this brass chandelier for $15, it was in perfect condition!
I used Valspar Premium Enamel Spray Paint in Mint (Satin finish) and because I wanted a lacquered look I also used a clear High Gloss finish coat. I almost went with Coral but decided on the Mint since it will hang in the hallway, open to the dining/kitchen/living room. The Coral was so pretty though I may have to use it on the chandy in our office.
The first thing I did was remove the bulbs, the white sleeves and then used painters tape to cover the sockets. I cleaned it really well and then started spraying.

Anyway, I had to do 3 really light coats, when it had dried I did two coats with the clear high gloss. I also swapped out the bulbs to modernize/freshen it up. Here it is waiting to be hung.
