Repurposing chandeliers - 5 ways

 

It's so much fun to take something old and give it new life. The next time you see a chandelier or candelabra at the thrift store or yard sale, look at it in a new way.

Here's a chandelier turned cake stand:



 Another one with vintage plates.




This one was made into an outdoor candle holder.
 


A bird feeder - ( I found it on Pinterest but the link doesn't go to the original site. I think the same steps would apply but you would use bowls.)

This one is a candelabra turned desert stand using vintage plates. The plates could be used on the chandeliers too.

  2. Thank you for bringing all of these ideas together! No lie, I have a very ornate candelabra under my desk at work right now (an odd hand me down from my boss) and it's just waiting to get a makeover like one of these.
