Candleabra from old hanging light fixture


A friend gave me this light fixture when she was remodeling her kitchen and said, "I could not bear throwing this in the trash knowing that you could make something pretty and useful of it". This turned out to be one of my very faves! We built a new home two years ago and it was difficult to leave this behind. A big thanks to my husband. He is great at repurposing! He is a retired industrial electrician/technician & I could say a "professional tinkerer". (Is that not totally southern? ha! :)
A picture is worth a thousand words.  This is very easy to do.  Simply remove the globes, the bulb sockets and all the wiring and let the fun begin.  I used acrylic paints and a clear spray sealer.  Paint it, hang it, and enjoy it!
