Sad Day

This weekend, in a burst of creative energy, John and I converted a brass electric chandelier we found by the side of the road into a candelabra for our back porch.

A little black spray paint and some elbow grease and I was really pleased with the results.

Though you can't see it in this photo, the chain goes all the way up to the roofline and hangs from a lovely wrought iron bar creating a really dramatic fixture.

Today when I came home, this is what I found.

Apparently our screws on the wrought iron bar were too short.

Sigh.
