REpurposing an old brass chadelier, to old iron for the patio

I have always wanted to reuse an old brass chandy for the patio. So when a friend offered me one for FREE, I snatched it. I took it apart and removed all the electrical, put it back together so it could be used with candle cups and then got to spraying it 'old iron', paint I got on clearance. Then used rope to hang and added the blue candle cups and voila, an Old Iron Chandy for the patio

    looks great. I am also doing one, but going to hang outside with solar lights instead of candles.

    I love this! We just replaced one that I could use. Unfortunately, the globes hung down rather than up. I don't think there's anything I can do with it.
