I am loving all the lanterns seen around blogland. So I have been on the hunt for them the past few months. I found these two at Home Goods. Sorry I don't have a before shot, they were a pewter gray and on clearance for about $4 each. I took out the glass and spray painted them a fun turquoise! I decided to only put every other glass panel back for easy lighting!
Next I found this tall black one at a garage sale for $1, yes $1. Just needed a new coat of fresh black to make it new again. We used a chain from an old hanging plant and presto, a lantern chandelier!
Our backyard is one long patio. This is a little seating alcove we have created. Can't wait to sit out their and light them. Been a little cool in So Cal in the evenings so may have to wait till the June Gloom makes way for July heat!
