I recently recieved 2 old brass lamp from my Grandmother. I'm not a fan of brass and would like to refinish them with chrome/silver. Is it worth the task and how would I do it?
Not sure if you got these lamps how you want them or not, but thought I would throw my 2 cents in. Everything I can find on the internet say this is not a DIY job. It seems that there is a lot involved when doing this so you might check in to see what it would cost to have someone do it for you. Let us know how it turned out
To have it professionally done you would most likely be looking for chrome plating although not as shiny just nickel plating can look sharp too. You can use paint and make them silver or even a chrome-ish silver but may not be happy with the painted result and the plating could cost as much as new fixture depending on what is desired.
A web search came up with some examples of places that do plating
