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
