Chandilier Project

I am going to get started real shortly on a project I have been putting off now for a little while. That is IF I can remember where I stuck the little glass beads that go with these prisms. ;) I am doing my very best to get some projects finished that I have started!

Back last year I found a little hanging candle at Kirkland's and when I saw it I KNEW what I was going to do with it. Well I made that one and will show pix of it. Well then later on in the year they had them on sale for almost nothing so I bought another one with the idea to take every other prism off the first one I bought and put on the new one, once it was painted like the other one that is. The garland I got these prisms from also had glass beads with metal like things in-between the crystals. So I figured I could use those as every other piece on the hanging lights. My plan is to take the candles out and put electric lights in them. The garland was glass Christmas garland I had found at Wal-mart and they were something like 8.00 each. I bought several of them because I love shiny things and flipped out over these. When you use them on the tree limbs it really weighs them down because the glass is SO HEAVY! Anyway I took them apart and used them that way for a little while on the Christmas tree. But then I decided to use them for this project.

These will go by our bed in the master bedroom. I'm going to hang them at the head of our bed, on the ceiling, one on each side of the bed.
Oh I forgot to say, the pix above, the old dark one is what it looked like before I painted it a country white from Wal-mart. That's what the hanging candle thing looked like when I bought it.

Also I did manage also last night to get my cake stand glued back together as well as my nieces little cupcake stand glued together. It says to let them dry and cure for several hours. If I am remembering right it was something like 72 hours so the glue would really be dry.

And speaking of projects I have started, as I told you yesterday I was going to have to put my serger in the shop. I took it today so a few of those projects will have to wait for the serger but hopefully it will not take a long time to get it fixed.

Make it a great day!!!
