Mason Jar Chandelier

The idea for a chandelier came together after
I found this huge wooden turned post
on the side of the road.

I had it laying around decorating the deck for a while I thought about what to do with it.

This piece was just too cool not to use it for something...

And then it hit me!

Mason jars! 

I have a ton of the antique ones with the wire!

I painted the "giant pepper mill" as my daughter calls it,
with green and white stripes to match a coffee table I painted for the deck.

I hung the post on 2 chains from the canopy frame. 

Eye hooks and cup hooks suspend the mason jars from 
metal springs and hooks.

Each mason jar is filled with a tea light.

The chandelier is also visible from my kitchen.

This is going to look gorgeous at night!

Oh Yes it does!
