I found a beautiful black iron candle chandelier at a yard sale at least 3 years ago. I took it apart and put it in the basement (with other yard sale finds that I just had to have, but hadn't gotten around to recreating yet). There is sat... until this spring when I got around the decorating our front porch.
It was super simple to transform this from candle chandelier to solar light chandelier. See the video tutorial below of how I finally made this piece come to life!
It's held up just fine for 3 months now in the HOT midwest temps, over a week of heavy rains, and even some cold days where we received frost in the later part of May. Gotta love midwest weather, right?
