Well with my old non-working electric chandelier
I turned it into
A candle chandelier!
I have had this chandelier sitting in my garage for a long time now, my mother gave it to me thinking I'd put it in the dining room but it was old and didn't work and I ended up using something different.
One day I looked at it and pulled it out of the mess and wanted to see if the light bulb holders? Could come off easily and they did.
I pulled them all off and cut the wires.
Then I hung it on a bungee cord to a tree to spray paint it, I used a primer first, then a glossy white and did about 3 coats, it wasn't easy getting the small arms.
I bought a 40lb ceiling hook and it was easy to instal and hung the chandelier with a new chain I also bought from Lowes.
The candles I picked up from Ikea yesterday, I used my hot glue gun to make sure they would stay in snug.
I always wanted a candle chandelier over my bathtub!
I love how it makes the bathroom a little bit more fun now!
I do wish the sun were out for better photos, but I couldn't wait to share my makeover!
This project cost me less then $20!
