I took a 75cent basket from the Salvation Army and spray painted it black.  I hung crystals and beads on it and added a length of chain.  I added some mini candles in jars and viola!  We now have a chandelier above the ice cream table on the porch!  I found this idea on Apartment Therapy and think its super cute.  What do you think?

    I love this! I’ve been checking your blog since you posted the before picture of the basket because we have almost an identical pink basket someone sent Teagan for Easter…and now I know what to do with it!

    Thanks! I how ours turned out, but for more info check apartmenttherapy.com and search for outdoor chandelier, of course, the gorgeous one they did was probably more expensive, but we probably did this one for like $6. Let me know how it goes!

    oh, and I haven’t added glass jars for the candles yet, but that will dress it up a bit too. I think baby food jars would be about the right size!
