The chandelier was a bright brass and so I needed to distress it by using black and brown hobby paint with a little glaze mixed in. The cord cover is the same material as the window treatments. The shades match another lamp shade in the breakfast room and came from Lowes. The inside of the shades are a nice gold to match the gold embroidery on the outside. Looking at these pics make me see that the "candlesticks" may have to be distressed to a warmer tone - the white kind of stands out from the rest. Guess that's tomorrow's project. What do you think?
