I used Martha Stewart glitter paint (also seen here) to add glitter on top of my spray paint job. It surprisingly stands out pretty well.
So about a month passed - and the glittery chandelier sat in a bag in my closet waiting to go up. I had an adorable pink rug, the perfect size for my closet, under the tree for Christmas (I may have done some of my husband's shopping for him) to complete the look. Or at least make a start at completing the look. I have big plans for new shelving in the future.
So after 2 more months... I finally convinced my husband to put up my chandelier as part of my Valentine's day present. I do feel like I should give him some credit here since we already have 3 chandeliers in the house - one of which he hung by himself (check them out here and here). I love it. It might be hanging a little low depending on how my re-shelving plan goes, but we can always shorten the chain. I also see some dangly beads or crystals in the future.
This picture is more true to color:

I have also been working on another chandelier related project (my biggest yet) with my dad... details to come in a few days!
