$10.48 Chandelier for my Garden...

I was so excited to share this makeover, I had to rush the setting sun this evening to be able to get a quick photo of it to show you all my finished Garden Chandelier...And yes you read the title right, it only cost me $10.48...Well less when you consider the left over supplies I have...

It was made from a re-purposed light fixture (Free on the side of the road)
2 mixed pks of pink and clear plastic diamond beads and faux pearls ($3 per pk...but I have about 1/2 left over for the next sparkly project)
And I purchased 3 packets of large plastic "crystals" (Walmart clearance $1.50each pk...and I have more than half left over also)

And a can of 0.98c white spray paint....

I am not sure exactly where it will live in the garden, it might end up being a little roving depending on what is growing and/or in bloom....

This is the before...I removed the lighting fixtures and the electrical wire...There is also a round metal disk that attached to hold up a large glass bowl...The metal disk is now the support frame for the bed netting in the guest room...The bowl may become a bird bath yet...will depend if I can find a place in the garden it will be safe from stomping 2yr old feet....
