Upcycle an Outdated Chandelier to a Solar Chandelier

My neighbors were getting rid of an outdated chandelier at their garage sale. I bought it from them and told them I was going to tear it apart and make a solar chandelier.

This is how it looked before I started on it. It also came with some globes to go over the lights. I am saving them for another project.

First I pulled the whole thing apart and gutted out all the electrical wire.

Then I proceeded to put it back together the way I wanted and eliminated the parts I didn’t want on it.

I used Rustoleum Metallic spray paint.

I hung it from a tree and spray painted it allowing me to get all sides of it. I left it there to dry.

I got solar lights from the Dollar Tree and pulled off the stakes.

I silicone all the solar lights into where the lights went.

I let it sit to dry.

This is what it looks like lit up at night.

I have it hanging on an old swing chair hook on our front porch to see if I like it in this location. If I do, I will center it. It gets indirect sunlight most of the day, and direct sunlight at the end of the day. The solar lights tend to run 4-6 hours after dark because of this. If I wanted it to run longer, I would have to hang it in direct sunlight all day.

Maybe you have a need for a solar chandelier too…
