75 Original Chandelier and Pendant Repurposing Ideas


upcycleDZINE is a blog that focuses on showing what upcycle design is all about. And not only that, but it also wants to show you inspiring ideas. In this group post, you’ll find 75 objects upcycled into unique design showing chandelier and pendant lamp repurposing ideas.

A collection of ideas

During a never-ending quest for inspiring and original upcycle design pieces, this blog grew into a place with an impressive collection of over 500 upcycling articles. That’s why posts were created showing a collection of upcycle design pieces made out of the same material/object or to show the same type of product.
