Bring the indoors out!

Chandeliers are for outdoors too! With the weather cooling down, it is time to open up the windows to let the fresh air in and invite friends over to enjoy the beautiful weather outside.  I love the idea of adding a chandelier to outdoor living spaces.  Whether it is illuminated with candles or electricity, they really add a nice touch to your space.  When decorating your outdoor living area remember to treat it like an extension of your home and decorate it like you would a room in your house.  I have been using my outdoor living space lately,  enjoying the company of my neighbors and my hubby.  Pass the ice tea please!

You can even make your own chandelier.  These projects above will require a little dexterity with wire cutters and the needle-nosed pliers, but the end results are cool.  Hang your fixture from a tree branch or porch roof for your next outdoor dinner party. Better still, fill your jars with soy citronella tealight candles (they burn cleaner) or add some drops of clove oil to the candles to keep the bugs at bay.
