I found on Pinterest a solar chandelier idea. I'm always looking for ways to add light in the backyard since we spend many evenings relaxing on the deck during the summer.

I found a brass chandelier at the Restore store for only $5.

Then I purchased some lamp parts to be able to hang it which weren't as cheap as I thought they'd be. Then I purchased some flat black spray paint and painted it.

I found solar lights on sale 2/$4. I had to find ones that would sit down flush in the chandelier. I got lucky and the ones I bought fit great.

I found super glue was the easiest way to attach the solar lights since it was metal to plastic.

Then it was ready to hang and enjoy!!
