Antique Hosier Flour Sifter Chandelier | Antique booth update

Flour sifter chandelier3Remember the industrial chandelier I made a few months ago?  (Click here to view)

Well… I’ve made another!

I was browsing the antique shop that I have a booth in and I spotted this antique flour sifter out of an old hosier.  Immediately I envisioned making it into a unique lamp or hanging chandelier of sorts.

I purchased it and brought it home with great intentions … then it ended up sitting in my garage for a while until I mustered up the inspiration to do something with it.

I originally thought I might hang a small chandelier out the bottom of it but couldn’t find one that would suit it that was just the right size or style.

Then I realized that it was pretty all on it’s own.  The enamel was in beautiful shape and there was no rust on it at all… oh, and that lovely little crank and cup pull… sweet enough detail all on it’s own without needing the bling…. nice and country, rustic chic!

I found a light kit and installed it and wrapped the cord with  fishtail weaved jute twine.  This was a little tricky and took FOREVER but was completely worth it.

If it doesn’t sell at my booth I won’t be sad :0)!

Speaking of which… I thought I’d share a few pics of how my booth is looking these days…

Thank you so much Larissa @prodigalpieces for tagging me in today's #trashure fun!  I don't know that this French chair was trash to begin with but it certainly did make its way into being a treasure indeed! This is my most recent makeover!💕#makeover #beautiful #statementpiece #upholstery #frenchchair There are 2 sides to everything and in this makeover too!  Velvety glam on the front and a modern statement in peacock feathers hugging the back!  Soooo pretty! 💕💕#thecuratorscollection #obsessed #sofine #soglam #feathers #velvet #statementpiece #beautiful #makeover #upholstery I am obsessed!! These (there are 2!) might just be the most luxurious chairs I have ever re upholstered! Gorgeous metallics mixed with luxurious fine velvets!  Wait till you see the backside of these chairs!  They will be delivered to their home tomorrow morning!  Can't wait!! #luxury #glamglow #makeover #upholstered #stunning #thecuratorscollection #soglam #sofine #obsessed Okay... here's a peek at the "during" of these two sweet chairs. They were  my client's Nana's chairs and it is my hope that Nana would be pleased with this makeover. #nanaschair #thecuratorscollection #makeover #upholstered #velvet #newlook #soglam #metallic So this is what has been keeping me busy these days... actually there are 2 of them! Without giving away what they look like now I thought I would share what the choices for fabric were first. My client chose the print for the backside and the velvet for the front side with exquisite soft pink velvet for the welting and the arms. I also gave the orange looking wood a glamorous look with some warm silver metallic paint. I hope to share with you soon! I don't want to share the reveal before the owner has had a chance to see them :). #thecuratorscollection #upholstered #makeover #velvet #soglam #mynanas Soooooo this is my current situation.... I'm on sewing machine number three in 2 days and a deadline nearing the end in 4 days! 😬 I SWEAR ITS NOT ME! Lol... hubby is trying to fix mine after bringing me home one from one of his co-worker's wife's ... how sweet is he? 💕huge shout out of gratitude to Mrs. Schafer for helping me in a pinch! 😘🌷#stressfulday #sewing #upholstery #deadlines #sweetpeople #thankyou #gratitude
