  1. Really cute, and much better than the original! Handmade has a story, not a price tag. Love it, thanks for sharing.

  6. Nice work! I saw that chandelier, too and thought.."I could make that..." but haven't gotten around to it. Now if I ever do, I'll be glad to have your tutorial :)

  11. That looks awesome! I agree with Ana White, it means so much more to you when you've done it yourself! GREAT job to both of you!

  13. Great job on your light fixture...and great tutorial. You make it looks so easy a Caveman could do it!

  14. Wow! You did an AMAZING job! I bet if yours was the one in the PB catalogue, you would love it just as much - it looks exactly the same. Great job guys...you should be hugely proud of yourselves and it looks charming in the corner.

  20. Awesome!!! I've been eying that one for awhile now too. I made a chandelier out of an antique broom holder and some forks and spoons. You can see it on my blog at www.juliejohnsonblog.blogspot.com.
    Looking forward to following you!

  22. You nailed it - you should start selling, pick your color of
    wine bottles say - green, blue . . . whatever. Keep the creative
    juices flowing!

  36. LOVE it!!! I've been plotting this myself; now I may really have to do it! I found you over on CSI, and this was just amazing.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I seriously admire you and your boyfriend... you both did a great job. I also found you over on CSI.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Fantastic job! I'm picturing this in our house with blue bottles. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Thanks for the amazing copy of the PB chandelier...I saw it in the catalog, and can't afford it,either...this gives me a great how to so I can make one, too, once I gather the wine bottles! THANKS!

    ReplyDelete
  40. THANK YOU! My husband will not tho. I have been searching and searching on how to make this because it is not longer available at PB! I am sooooo excited now!!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Would you like to make another one and sell it? I would be willing to buy one!

    ReplyDelete
  42. This is absolutely amazing. I have been dying to buy the one from PB but that $400 price is just so much. I went back to look online and see if it "might" be on sale and because I have a 10% coupon and now I can't find it!!! I will pay you to make one for me :0)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I saw something similar in a Better Homes and Garden photo in an outdoor setting. I keep thinking of a wheel with spokes and how it might be used for the framework to attach the bottles. In the one I saw the bottles were attached with plastic ties from the hardware store. No holes to drill. I must try to go back and look again. Enjoyed pictures and how you developed idea together!

    ReplyDelete
  44. Thank you so much for coming up with these plans! I have been wanting to make this to make over my table on my porch. Now I know what my husband will be doing on Father's Day...

    ReplyDelete
  45. I'd say it's more beautiful than the other one. And its special too because it is labored with love. Thanks for sharing the step-by-step ways to do it.

  46. What type of light fixture did you use? Could you email me a photo? smokediver235@gmail.com

    ReplyDelete
  47. Hi! I would love one....do you take orders????? I would pay you to make one! Steph

    ReplyDelete
  48. What type of light is in each bottle?

    ReplyDelete
  49. I was inspired by your creation, and decided to build one myself. I used the same pine top and rotor clips, but I used a simple ceiling fan fixture for the light. I can't post a picture here, but I could send a picture if you're interested. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  50. Just linked you for my first blog post!
    Great Tutorial.

  51. It was a great creation and marvelous,,,,,this can be very useful information for whoever use the chandeliers for lighting fixtures
