When we were putting the electrical into the greenhouse, my husband asked me if I wanted a hanging light. Um…yeah. But I don’t need electrical for it. I have another idea…
Upcycling at its best
So I looked for free or cheap chandeliers in the area and finally found someone willing to donate to my cause. It wasn’t quite the shape I wanted but I’m sure it could work. I mean, it was free. I just needed to pretty it up a bit.
Queue the black spray paint! Because that makes everything better. I took everything apart first and got rid of the electrical parts. Then painted all the things! Jim brought home a bunch of free black spray paint from work…so far the project cost me nada.
I finally found the glass bowls that I wanted to use at the Dollar Tree along with rocks to fill the bottom of the bowls. Cost tally = $9 (+tax). We gorilla glued down the bowls and let that dry up.
Now the most important part…plant shopping! I picked out a centerpiece for each piece and then a few smaller fillers. And some other project things…of course.
And everything all together now!
Hanging out at home
And now she’s home! In her happy place.
