Junk Drawer Objects Make Treasured Chandeliers

Repurpose / Refurbish

I bet that many of you have a sort of “junk drawer” somewhere in your homes, filled with items that might range from rubber bands, match boxes, take-out menus, plastic cutlery (sealed in plastic and wrapped in a napkin, right?), coins, loose beads, etc. Whatever the objects are, we can’t seem to throw them away, but you’re not alone. Check out these examples below that illustrate how junk drawer stuff can evolved into sweet and beautiful chandeliers. Light on!
