Transforming a dated chandelier into a table centerpiece.
Time spent: forty minutes waiting for paint to dry and ten minutes to assemble.
Started with a dated '70's brown and faux copper chandelier.
Stripped out the wiring.
Well, Chucks actually did that for me.
Two coats of Rust-Oleum Navajo White.
(Looks like a carnival ride.)
I purchased my paint screens at Habitat for a dollar.
I did learn not all candles are the same size, and only one size fit the cup.
Dollar General, but not Dollar Tree.
Added some fake greenery.
I like the way it looks here.
Placed in the middle of a table with real greenery.
Light those candles.
(Though I would switch to unscented candles around food.)
Except the guy who sold it to me wrapped each glass shade carefully in a zillion sheets of paper.
So I felt I should use them.
Even though he would never know.
It is now available in Booth C-23, Riverfront Antique Mall in North Augusta, South Carolina.
