Apostrophy Designs: SYTYC Upcycle - Pinkalicious Chandelier {TUTORIAL}

SYTYC Upcycle - Pinkalicious Chandelier {TUTORIAL}

{I am finally getting around to posting this due to the troubling time I had and my reason for leaving SYTYC...but here it is a few months later! :)}

 I typically love sewing projects and found myself stumped for the Upcycled Challenge, so I decided to come up with a craft for my sewing table.

I took a drab, old, and dingy flower basket and turned it into a Pinkalicious Chandelier!

 Not only did this turn out to be stunning and elegant, it is actually functional!

Can't wait to start sewing up some PRETTY things to match my new lighting fixture!


I bought about 10 bags of mardi gras beads from the dollars store. I used some floral wire I had on hand to wire the beads to the hanging basket holder in three places.

I attached the top level first and then the second before hanging it from the ceiling to attach the underneath.

After that I spray painted it like crazy. I have to admit this was the challenging part because I thought I was done and then a hint of gold or silver would appear.
Be patient, paint lots.

Overall I really love the chandelier and how perfectly it fits in with my cute [super} little sewing space!

What a cool idea Tori! It looks great, especially in your sewing space (of which I am totally jealous of).
