The Changing Chandelier

Granted the new chandelier doesn't really look like anything spectacular, I still thought it'd be better to un-shine it before hanging it. Sandra and I looked at metal paints to try to figure out what to use. Here's how it looked before we started:

We picked up a can of Knocked Brown metal spray paint. We were worried that the paint wouldn't stick to the light at all, but it did with some difficulty. Sandra spray painted while I was working on something else. It was clear after one coat that a second would be required. Here's what it looked like after one coat:

You can't tell at all from the picture, but specks of gold were still showing through the brown. One more coat will be necessary.
