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…
