Our Outside Chandelier! (Updated!)

I finally got to start on our outside “nightlight”! My good friend Katrina gave me this old chandelier so I am re-purposing it for our backyard at the homestead. I am still in the process of getting it finished, but I am so excited about it that I had to share the progress so far! I’ll be updating more when I get it done!

UPDATE!!!!

Hubby and I finished our outside chandelier last night! I am in love with it and plan to do a couple more!

It was so easy! First we hot glued the solar light to the place where the light bulb would have gone on the chandelier (save the posts that came with the lights, you can use them to replace any broken ones that are already in the ground!)

Then just put the base of the light on the hot glue/rim of the chandelier and voila !!!!  You are done !  I let it dry/harden for a few minutes then put the light part on the clear “shade” part that we had glued on the chandelier.  I LOVE how it turned out !

Here are just a couple photos of our “Hen Resort” at night 🙂   We have lights around our patio (the “people part” of our yard), our new chandelier hanging on a shepherds hook, and lights around the chicken coop/pen !

  1. I love your beautiful chandelier for your hens! Our chickens don’t have any night lights, poor neglected girls. Maybe I should get them one? Loved reading about your project.
