The Upcycled Chandelier

Don't take that old chandelier to the dump just yet! Did you know there are tons of smart ways that you can upcycle an old chandelier into something brand new and  wonderfully different? How about turning an old chandelier into a planter for your garden, or into a backyard bird feeder?  Don't have a cast off chandelier of your own to  repurpose into a new creation? Then why not create your own unique chandelier out of salvaged and repurposed materials like some of the ones pictured below? Read on and be inspired!
