A project from a junking pioneer!
This wagon wheel chandelier was made by my dad in 1961. It hangs at our family cabin. I would like to update it....maybe industrial looking lights? Would love opinions and ideas from Junkmarket members!

But it does fit our little lodge look cabin style and I can't imagine not seeing it hanging there. :-) Posted: 5:19 am on June 12th
