Repurposing Old Lighting Into Out Yard Art ( an Outdoor Candlelier)
How I made an Outdoor Candlelier from resale items....You can view the step by step or see more details on my blog....http://www.rustic-refined.com/2014/06/how-to-make-outdoor-candlelier.html
I purchased two separate lights. One chandelier and one floor lamp. I dismantled the chandelier so that only the circle bracket (for lack of better word) holding the chandy arms was the one piece I wanted. I also had hubby pull/yank all the electrical wiring out of the floor lamp
Hubby and I screwed the chandelier disc into the top of the floor lamp. (more detail & pics on my blog)
I spray painted the entire thing brown with krlyon spray paint
I added floor leg plastic protectors for candle holders.
Enjoyed the project?

PAULA LOVELL on Jun 28, 2014I wonder if you can get citronella tapered candles? They would be great for keeping away the bugs.

Carol Little on Jul 26, 2014@The Garden Frog with C Renee I usually find my chandeliers at the Habit for Humanity Restore and also light fixtures at a variety of thrift stores!! Good Luck.
The Garden Frog with C Renee on Jul 27, 2014@Carol Little the only problem is: Thrift stores and Restore here are over priced and most times I can find the items cheaper in the store on sale or clearance.
