I’ve been wanting these lanterns for several years now, ever since I spotted them in the Frontgate catalog. The problem was paying the high price for them….just couldn’t do it. I wanted these for the yard during the summer when we have outdoor grill parties. I can picture them lighting up the walk path and in clusters of three by the buffet and outdoor dining tables. I would also use them as lighting on the front porch on Halloween night, or anywhere around the house, really. I just love candle light.
I started collecting these lanterns from thrift shops and stores like HomeGoods, when I find them. I found this one at my local Goodwill this past weekend for only $6.99. It’s gold metal and it’s 32″ tall….substantial. I grabbed it as soon as I saw it. A lantern this size and material would cost between $69 and $89 at HomeGoods…..SCORE!!!. It just need a little TLC. I will be working on this before this summer.
I’m not sure if I want to keep it gold or spray paint it silver. What do you think? What would you use it for?
