New front porch faux chandy

I love Olivia's Romantic Home's new post about a front porch.

She made her own chandelier out of an old planter.

So, I decided to make my own, too!

Thank you for the idea, Olivia!

This is it, finished and hanging.


I started with a black planter that had flowers in it last year.

It took less then 10 minutes to paint it.



Painted and ready for drying.


I added some fun sparkly things I had around the house.

Tied a ribbon and put a hook on the ceiling of my front porch.


I wanted to add some crystals to hang but I didn't have any extras.

I see a trip to Hobby Lobby in my future :)


I love how it turned out!


Again, as I said on an earlier post, sorry for the dead plants.

I am anxiously wanting for spring to come.



The new faux chandelier matches this new pot waiting for flowers that I got last week!



Thank you so much for the fun idea, Olivia! I love it!
