Vintage jar chandelier

The other day at the flea market I purchased what I think was a pot rack for $3.


I painted it sprayed it white and distressed it. I gathered up 8 vintage jars I found in the BOTTLE DUMP. I tied wire around the neck of each and hung them from the "pot rack". I added lemon balm to each jar and hung my new chandelier from the ceiling of my front deck.





Remember, just about anything can be turned into a planter or a vase. Be sure to read my earlier post about sending me your unique ideas. More about that HERE.

  14. Most people hang lights or candles. You hung glass jars with plants in them. I love that. It just brings the room so much more life. It makes you feel more in touch with nature.
