Revamped Chandelier

I wanted a crystal chandelier for my dining room. I searched for something affordable. Not! So I decided to make my own.

I found an old rusty candle light fixture at a junk shop. Cleaned it up, and painted it with "gold" rust stopping paint. Then sprayed lightly with a flat black to make it look old! I ordered four 9 foot sections of clear plastic beads from a Christmas store. I decorated it with the beads and added candle shaped bulbs. It is beautiful and everyone remarks about it when they come to my house.

This is very pretty, and you know with the beads you could change them out for different colors and looks, great idea.

Very ingenious! How much did the whole chandelier cost you to make from start to finish?

Candle shaped bulbs are everywhere pretty much and I get them at the dollar tree just be careful the wattage you put in there!
