It is time for the Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge, and I made this DIY Chandelier Floor Lamp that I am in love with.
This is the easiest project that I have done since we started this challenge. Usually, I take items from the Thrift Store and turn it into something completely different.

This time I used two expected items to make this floor lamp. The beauty of this project is that it cost me $15 instead of $841 that I would pay at Restoration Hardware for a chandelier floor lamp.
I found the chandelier at my favorite thrift store and a few of the strands of beads had come loose but it was so simple to put back on. Thrift Stores always have floor lamps and most of the lamps would work for this project. The chandelier needs to have a plug-in cord to work.
I just recently got a spray paint shelter from HomeRight and I wish that I had this for the past 20 years. Using hanging clothes rack works to hold my chandelier so that I can spray paint it. the chandelier is sprayed with one coat of primer and two coats of white paint.
I cut the cord off the floor lamp because it does not need to work. The chandelier has a switch on the plug so the chandelier works. You don’t need for the floor lamp to work, it just holds the working chandelier.
I slipped the chandelier over the floor lamp.
It fit into the socket perfectly. I did not need to attach it because it is in there securely.
I can’t stop staring at my DIY Chandelier Floor Lamp in the corner of my bedroom because it looks so elegant! I can’t wait to go thrift shopping for next month’s challenge. Don’t forget to visit my friend’s blogs and see what they have created.
