The hardest part of the project was removing the crystals. I took pictures to remember where they needed to be put back. I used small jewelry pliers to try to keep the small rings in tact. To achieve the antique white look I wanted, I used Kilz spray paint.
It took a few coats because I got a little close and had to sand down the bubbles. It was also hard to get in the small spaces so I had to spray it in shifts and let each side dry.
The final piece- Trust me it looks much better in person.
