  1. Find the chandelier you would like to spray paint. I got mine from a garage sale, but if you have an old one you want to spruce up within your home, that will work as well.
  2. Lightly sand the chandelier with a sanding sponge.
  3. Hot glue any accents that may need to be attached
  4. Open a door or window, or do this project outside. Always wear a face mask to avoid inhaling chemicals.
  5. Put down newspaper under the chandelier to protect any surfaces.
  6. Begin spray painting the chandelier. Start with one coat, and if it needs more, add another layer or two within the hour
