Free Chandelier as Yard Art

My free chandelier from a garage sale is now hanging as an unexpected piece of yard art on the side of my house. Those 2 windows are in my kitchen so I can look out and see this area. I would like to do something more with this side yard, just not sure exactly what. Hope y'all have a safe and fun Fourth of July weekend! GOD BLESS AMERICA!!!

I'd love to get one of those for my gazebo and put candles in place of lights. It looks like you have some nice shade on the side, Angie! Probably a nice place to sit when it's reall hot out.

It look so cute and I have the same chandy from a garage sale to, I have been wondering what to do with it, maybe I will try that! I think a pretty metal table and chairs in white would look pretty in your side yard, it looks so peaceful there (;

Oh I absolutely love your side yard...just as it is. That chandelier adds such character. I don't know why you would want to change a thing. I always love stepping stones.

Just lovely. I like the unexpected!

Super cute! I love it.

Amy Loos said...

Love this idea...might need to add it to my own garden! As for the chandy and what to do with it...how about using some epoxy and gluing some teacups to the arms to use as little bird feeders? Especially since this is a secluded area and you can see it from your windows, you and the birds would love it!
Enjoy! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home! Blessings, Amy

It looks great! Wonderful idea.

Kristi said...

What a great idea!!! And your garden is beautiful!

Vicki said...

LOVE THIS IDEA!! I have an extra shepards hook that I was wondering what to hang from it!!! thanks for the inspiration

Deb said...

Thank you so much for sharing this idea! I have one almost exactly like it. I was going to rewire it and do a make-over, as it used to be brass. It's been hanging from the ceiling of my craft room forever, as the rewiring proved to be a bit too much. SO, now I'm going to hang it outside like you did.
