Hey is that chandelier SOLAR POWERED!?

I JUST realized everyone* is taking their crappy old indoor chandys, removing the guts and sticking solar lights in to hang outside! HOW COOL IS THAT!?

Solar lights are everywhere these days - even the dollar tree carries them. Broken down chandys are at every garage sale, Habitat store and attic I've ever seen. So what do you have to lose?

One of the easiest ways is to snap off the bottom of the lights and hot glue them to the new base but if you are more patient:

You can spray paint the tops and make it look super custom!

I love this look so much. Anything useful and sustainable plus free to boot is aces in my book.
