    Love those globe pendants. I have an extra globe, and may just have to try that.

    Could you possibly help me locate the source for the colorful strainers chandelier? I have searched the web but with no luck. That fixture would be absolutely perfect for my new house. I would greatly appreciate any help that you could give me.

      Hi Betty! What do you mean by strainers?

      1. Betty Dorsey says:

        The 5 colanders (strainers) chandelier shown in this article.
        Thank you very much.

          Oh my, Betty! When I first read your comment, I was thinking of a different post! I view comments on a different screen… so sorry about that! I have only seen them at antique stores(here in Southern CA, MD, and WI) and they are few and far between! Do you have a place where there are several stores you can peruse?

      I got the colanders at world market. $1.99 each.

    Need the source or how to make the 5 colander chandelier? Thanks! Love it all!

    1. Dinah Wulf says:

      Hi Terry! Unfortunately I believe the source for the colander chandelier is from an Etsy shop that no longer exists. BUT, I believe in this particular one, if you found the base you can upcycle, you can simply drill holes in the bottom center with a metal drill bit and slip the colander over like a light bulb shade. The trick is finding the right chandelier! I hope this helps!

      1. Terry says:

        Hi Dinah, thanks so much for responding even though my comment is so late. I’m going to try it on my old kitchen chandelier that just might work! I just wanted a little confirmation and guidance, so thanks again!

          No problem! I hope it works! Send me a photo!!
