I don't have a before picture of this chandelier, but it was your typical shiny brass. I took out the electrical guts, spray painted it with primer, and then spray painted it black.
I used E-6000 to glue the ribbon onto the chandelier.
I used twist ties to hold the ribbon in place until the glue dried. Genius move, don't you think? Always repurposing!
I love candles, the way the light flickers, and the wonderful fragrance.
