Light Fixture/ Lantern

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
Moving forward on some painting projects and getting some things done that have been waiting for my attention for awhile. Feels good to knock stuff off your list doesn't it?

Do you love lanterns?
I do!!
Hanging lanterns, wall lanterns, all lanterns..

Love my PB lantern!

My kitchen table lantern..

So when I saw this lantern at Goodwill I knew it needed to come home with me!
It was a mere $7..oh yeah!

It still had the glass and wiring 
Hubby removed both and I added some candles

I hung it from a hook I already had

I love it!
In the future it might receive a coat of paint but for now I love the iron look.

Do you love lanterns?
Don't overlook those old light fixtures
Sometimes the funnest things just need a little creativity!

Back to painting!
