to paint or not to paint

I found this chandelier at a consignment store for $25.  Its not the pagoda chandelier or turquoise beaded chandelier of my dreams, but I think I can make it work.

I am, however, debating whether to paint it before putting it up.  It looks sort of silver in the pictures, but in real life it is a dull, greenish brass.  Not a warm, goldish brass, but a dull, ugly, yucky brass.

Do I Rub-n-Buff it to a warmer brass?  Do I paint it?  Everything in this room is white, brown or blue.  That all seems very predictable.  Red?  Leave it alone and live with dull brass?  (Even the dull brass is better than the ugliness currently in there.)


  1. totally PAINT IT!!! It will make it super interesting/exciting! Red would be really fun- can't wait to see it finished!

  2. I like the idea of the rub and buff!
