I turned my old shiny brass chandelier into a shabby chic light for my porch. I spray painted it, then draped beads I got at Hobby Lobby on it. It works with a cord so it's portable. You can find lots of shiny brass chandeliers at Good Will and Habitat for Humanity's Restore shops. There's no tutorial for how to make it on my blog; I got the idea from this blog: http://www.notjustahousewife.net/2011/01/chandelier-tutorial.html which has a tutorial.
