I have a brass chandelier that I am repurposing. I am spraying it flat black and getting some fabric shades for the lights in a taupe color. No pictures yet, but maybe I will post one when I finish it.

I agree it looks dated. I'd start by cleaning it. Maybe it won't look so bad. Get a new chain, and straighten the "candle" part of the lamps. Go to a lighting store for new "candle" sheaths. Don't use plastic. You can certainly paint it. The color depends on the decor in the room. White looks great at the beach. Even a bright color, like orange or Bahama blue would be fun. It all depends on where it lives. A forest green or Burgundy red are good for a woodsy location. And black works, too. But I'd start with sprucing up the fixture itself first.
