Up-cycled Orb Chandelier

I have been seeing these amazing orb chandeliers around and have decided to try making one of my own.  It all started with a cheap brass chandler, old barrel rings, and some old rope.

Barrel rings

I drilled a small pilot hole into one ring at a time then increased the size of the drill bit until it would fit my bolt at the bottom and the top of the chandelier at the top.  I used the chandeliers final to attach my rope.  For the chandelier I spray painted it black and attached chandelier crystals.

  1. wonderful idea in the first place, but what's so neat is you made it your own! Loved the way you displayed it too.
