Bring life back into your outdated chandelier and turn it into a beautiful and upcycled flower planter chandelier. Learn how!

I love a good upcycle, and today’s project is about turning an old, brassy-looking thing into a beautiful flower planter chandelier. The hardest part of this entire project was picking out which broken chandelier I should buy!

Since I wasn’t planning on using any of the light bulbs or random bits hanging on to dear life from this gem it was pretty easy taking my snippers and removing all the unnecessary items.

I think there were a few screws that had been stripped and I needed “manpower” (literally), but other than that. Easy-peasy!

Next, I strung this bad boy up! It would be pointless spray painting an elaborate piece like this from its side then have to turn it over, and chance messing up the paint job. Not cool.

So, I lightly dusted and cleaned this guy up prior to painting to remove any leftover debris.

I wanted to use my favorite Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze, but go figure, I was out. Instead, I used a cheap black gloss spray paint that I believe I picked up from Walmart. $1.99 maybe? Not too shabby!

Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised with how well this chandelier turned out with the black gloss. It completely transformed it!

Last, I grabbed some handy-dandy teacups and filled them with pretty flowers.

P. S. I did not use an adhesive to adhere the cups to the chandelier. At this time I’m thinking it will be easier to clean up the flowers at the end of the season if I can remove them, but we shall see! I’ll definitely keep you updated if I change my mind.

Plus, you wouldn’t have to use flowers in the teacups. You could always add candles, solar lights, wine glasses, or other random objects you have around your home to make this chandelier truly one of kind.

  1. Seriously, when do you find time to do all of this! I love this chandelier, it looks great on the spruced up deck. The black is right up my alley. You gotta show more pics when those flowers begin to grow all around the chandelier, it is going to be gorgeous!

    1. I have a clone. Didn’t I mention that? 😉 Man, I wish I did! I would really be kicking butt if I did! I have to admit that the only thing that I regret with this project is not finding two similar chandeliers. How pretty would that have been to have each on a side of my back deck?!? I will definitely keep an eye on the flowers (hopefully my non-gardening skills do not interfere) so they will cascade over the tops of the teacups. That is definitely going to be gorgeous 🙂

  2. This is a super cute idea. Makes me wish I had somewhere to hang a chandelier outside.

    1. Hi Stephanie! Do you have a large window, a tall ceiling or even a some space in your bathroom? I bet it would look great in any of those places too. I do wish I had more space for a few of these beauties 🙂

  3. So sweet, what a great recycle. I guess it depends how windy it gets by you as to whether you will need to glue the tea cups in place somehow. Sometimes you just have to see how it goes, don’t you?

    1. You are definitely correct! I’m thinking it’ll be ok (it’s already been through two rain storms!), but sometimes you just have to test the waters. Thanks for stopping by 🙂
