Chandi Redoux-The Final Chapter

Yay I have finally completed this mission!!!!
On the last post I had rewired the small chandi and before that I had rescued the small chandi from an outdated contraption that was once a loved light fixture. I think, but it will be loved again <3.
So that should catch you up to speed.  I headed to the Dollar Tree store to find some do-dads to add to the naked chandi.  I found some mardi gras beads,  O.o .... some of you maybe thinking how is that french?  They are not but will become a lot better when I paint them with gold leaf.

See? looking better already.  So then I cut them into different lengths and grabbed my hated glue gun.  Have I told you how much I hate my glue gun?  It's soul purpose in it's life is to burn me and cover me in it's spider webby threads.  But alas I can not craft without it.  (insert pity here)

So without further whining and delay here is completed chandi french style.

(insert OOOOH AND AAAAAAHS  here) 
Let's take a pause and reflect on the ugliness this use to be.
(shudders) ok enough of that, back to the after 
Ah sooooo much better.  So what's stopping you?
