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
Old Brass Chandy - before beautification!
minor surgery and removal of inerds!
put back together and ready for paint.
spray paint on clearance, score!
Painted, candled, and roped for hanging.
Close up of iron with blue
Hung and ready to party! Success.
