DIY chandelier

Hi there!
Now that I finally have some time on my hands, I've been refurbishing my living room, so I have been looking around on the internet to find me a nice chandelier. I didn't want an ordinary one, since I do have a lot of old furniture and wanted to prevent it from getting the "grandma look". No offense to any grandmas reading this, that is. So I found a lovely chandelier for only €15. A lot of glass and very shiny golden parts, exactly what I had been trying to avoid. So I decided to simply spray paint it. I used some plain white spray paint from the local DIY-store. At a total of €20 I got me a lovely white not so ordinary, not so grandma-like chandelier. Let me know what you guys think of it!






Don't be fooled by the lovely combination with the rug on the background of the photos. Combined with the rest of my furniture it was like going back in time a few decades;) 



Sorry for the overwhelming amount of photos, I kinda got carried away by all the shiny glass and gold;)
