Hi clever folks-
I put this on Craigslist and got no takers. There are plenty of 80s looking brass chandeliers out there. So do you have any trash to treasure ideas for this? Or is it just trash/ charity donation?

If you can take out the guts of it and the top, you could invert it and use it for a large, fat candle. See first photo.

Another possibility is a terrarium. See second photo, although the shapes are not at all alike.

Another possibility is to invert it, put a pot inside and fill the space between with small round stones or marbles perhaps.

Sally, what a cool recycle into a feeder! Keeps the seeds dry, too. I know your car was amazingly packed, but it would have been fun to bring the lamp along to the swap.

gut it, invert it and use as planter, or decorative birdbath.
