Repurposed Rooster Chandelier

6:38:00 AM

My thrift store find of the day was this great rooster chandelier...

This is a picture of the one on line that is still for sale for $739.00


The one I found was not in great shape, and no where
near that kind of money!

I love roosters but a face lift was certainly in store for this chick...

I brought it home and cleaned it up immediately.

I began with a coat of textured white spray paint.

Next... the electricity and the candles needed to go...

The electric wires were cut when I bought it, there was 
a broken bulb stuck in the socket, and the shades were 
crispy so.... like everything else... I pulled it apart.

I needed something to create a cup to hold tea light candles
in each arm of the chandelier... Rummaging through my
pile of junk I found this...

A few parts from this Ikea clothesline will work perfectly.

I needed to even out the surface and create a cup for the candle...

After gluing these pieces together then painting it white, the chandelier looks like it was made to hold tea lights 
or votive candles.

Here it is... no electricity needed. It can be hung 
anywhere and looks beautiful.

  2. That is a lovely lamp! I would love to have something "old-style" like that in my dining room!
    And how clever to make it a lamp for candles!

  3. It turned out really nice! I like how you saved a non-working light and made it functional again. The tea light idea is perfect!
