I have been wanting to make one of these for several years. I finally found the perfect old chandelier. It's sitting amongst some other treasures I picked up at an auction. I collected the right teacups and even picked up some brand new crystals to hang from it. I painted the chandelier white, pink, sage and yellow. I really love the look of it. Of course, I removed all the wiring and sockets, put candles in the teacups so now it's a candelier. Do you think it would look better without the crystals at the bottom? I did take off the crystals hanging from the arms of the candelier. It looks so much better.
