2nd Time Around Tuesday


This week I'm sharing a bunch of chandeliers that I got at a Garage Sale a couple years ago. There were 3 total, in various degrees of shape. 2 were almost completely dismantled. But all the parts were there including the crystals. How much?? $10.00 for the whole box!!! They were originally brass, so I painted them and antiqued and my sweetie (who is good at everything) re-wired 2 of them. The one above is hanging in my bedroom.

The one below, didn't have all the part we needed so I glued wooden candle cups to it, and now it is a candelabra that hangs in my guest bathroom.


This one hangs outside on my porch. I absolutely love it out there at night. One flick of a switch and I have instant ambiance!!! Be sure to check out all the other entries at A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words.

Karen, it's me stitches-n-stuff, I am you last entry for your party. Thank you for letting me visit. I love the chandeliers. I bought my first one for $35.00. It's hanging, and it works, but I need to replace the covers with something, you've given me an idea.

Thank you, Cindy
