Serene Spaces

As my readers are aware, we’ve been working hard on our garden this spring to create a welcome retreat from the city. After completing our water feature, I wanted to finish it off with a cool chandelier to hang over our back patio. This would not only help to define the space, but it would also add a nice touch of ambient light to add to the serene atmosphere we wished to create.

I almost gave up, however, after searching for an outdoor chandelier that was a good size, but didn’t come with a hefty price tag.

Thankfully, I remembered having some old chandeliers in the attic that we had taken down when we first moved into our new house. After rummaging around I found one that was the perfect size and shape.
I ran into a problem though, because the chandelier was built to have the glass globes hang down from the outstretched arms. As I wanted to place candles on the arms, I had to do some quick problem solving. The answer came as I turned the chandelier upside down and removed and reversed the chain and fob. Whaala!! We had a new vintage outdoor chandelier for no extra cost!!
Now, the only issue was how to light the candles in the evenings when we wanted to enjoy the garden.

Again, I searched long and hard and discovered these remote controlled battery operated outdoor candles from Frontgate!
