My Outdoor Chandelier

This isn't a pretty chandelier I must admit. For me, it seems a bit too angular. I bought this chandelier at a flea market roughly twelve years ago. Well, immediately after I brought it home, I realized it wasn't my style. At that time, I was really into and still am into French decor (although I think I over Frenched it...sometimes I wish I started with the vintage/shabby look....anyhoo), so I decided to put this chandelier in my shed. Now, twelve years later, my covered patio (or gazebo) needs lighting. Ding -ding -ding - Light bulb! That chandelier in my shed. Perfect! A chandelier will add a touch of feminity inside my patio. So this chandelier was repainted white and adorned with pink and white prisms. Now, I'm very frou frou. I would have adorned this baby to the hilt, but because it will be outside, I gave it my minimal adornments. So here it is! I'm so girly even outside of my house.


P.S. Sorry for the messy patio. I'm still working on it.

Hi Lisa,
Your chandelier looks great. You'll have to share pictures of your patio when it's done. My Hubby and I also started a Summer Patio Project and I added a "candleier" he bought for me when we first got married...16 years ago. I just worked on it recently too for this project. I'll be posting about it soon. Come check it out.

Ciao for now,

You did a great job on refurbishing that chandelier. Painting it with white definitely helped it to look more elegant. I usually spot traditional chandeliers with bronze paint, so seeing a white one is indeed new to my eyes. Hehe! Anyway, is it still on your patio?
