Old Chandelier Turns Teacup Candelier

In Week 8 of my Diamonds In The Rough! post I shared with you a very old, very cool chandelier.

I thought it had great potential. My decision was made on Week 14 of Diamonds In The Rough! when I discovered these sweet cups and saucers.
After cleaning and striping all the wires out of the chandelier, I changed this chandelier into a CANDELIER! What do you think?

See how the top portion has the look of a tassel!

The bottom finial has the look of a tassel as well!
Just add tea lights and it's ready to go!
This will be so cute in my mall booth...until someone buys it!
