faux lantern chandelier
Last spring was the first time we visited the Round Top antiques market. We made a number of purchases that have all added character to our home. One vendor had buckets full of oversized old keys, so naturally we grabbed a handful. She also had a dozen or so rusty lanterns. We bought three, not quite knowing what they would become.
But as is usually the case, there was an empty corner in the bedroom that needed some extra attention, so I transformed the lanterns into a faux swag chandelier (not powered) with utility wire, jute string, and link chain leftover from a previous light fixture installation.
While my cautious nature wards away the temptation to burn actual candles, I do think battery powered votives might add a nice glow. Just haven’t gotten to that quite yet…
Oh, and while we’re on the subject of the charming appeal of old items, can I just please repost one of the sweetest additions of an old door to an interior that I have seen in a long time? This pretty interior from the blog, Love & Photographs.
Thank you for dropping by 🙂
