How many of you have one of these guys? Mine is the el-cheapo model, which meant the brass coating was already wearing off. I'm not really sure how something hanging in mid air can wear off, but anyways.
Enter my friend, ORB:
Plus some cute lampshades:
I still need to make a cord cover for the chain part, but otherwise - lookin' good!
ORB paint: free, leftover from previous projects ($ 2.97 at Wally World)
lampshades: 5 @ $4 each
material for cord cover [future work]: free, leftover from previous projects
Total cost: <$25 including tax. A completely brand new chandy would cost ~$75-125 and the shades can be transferred if we ever have to replace this one.
