Homemade petite chrystal chandelier on a vintage birdcage stand.

I found this dated foyer light fixture at a garage sale for $2. I took it apart and used just the inside bulb assembly. I spray painted the brass white. I then took an old teacup and drilled a hole in the bottom with a china drillbit. I assembled a cute chandelier complete with crystals and made a toile fabric sock for the chain. I wired it on a dimmer to plug into the wall. I then hung it from an old vintage birdcage stand. Now it can go anywhere in my home.
