I am being creative with a couple of old crystal chandeliers that The Sweetheart found (in the pine wardrobe in his garage) and was about to sling into the garbage.
I pulled them apart, washed 20 years of garage dust from them, and polished up the crystals. Then I ripped the electricals out of them (who wants plastic fake candles anyway???).
I managed to get the two of them screwed together - with some ingenuity and grittings of teeth - and draped them with the original crystals as well as a pile I have been collecting for a long time.
|What they looked like to start with - less the plastic fake candles and the flickery light bulbs...|
|Rippin' out the electricity (NB - I painted the shelf which is going into the pantry cupboard)|
|The two chandeliers screwed together and with extra dangles, prisms, crystals, beads etc.|
|And from the other angle. The gold cup screws up over the hook that will be in the ceiling. When I find something strong enough - it now weighs about 10 kgs.|
