Switching gears mid-makeover-stream is a must. I mean, sticking with an original plan is way too easy.
Chaos breeds creativity.
Or is it the other way around?
A few weeks ago, I showed you the finalists in my hunt for a new chandelierover my breakfast nook table. I had narrowed it down to the first option, and was just about to place my order when I came across this thing.
Any idea what it is?
Maybe a hanging planter?
John and I were walking around Indulge and spotted this high up on a shelf. It was interesting and we both knew we could do something with it.
And then it hit us – why not make it our new chandelier?
Yes – why not?
We started off by drilling a hole in the top to feed the wire through…
The first section of chain linked to the frame…
We continued the chain by linking the second section to the ring…
After John wired it up, we had a new light!
How cool is this? I am in love with it.
I also love the idea that it is one-of-a-kind.
Now, looking at the light inside, you may wonder how we got that large globe inside the metal frame.
Well, picture something like this:
As you all know how the Hulk operates, the key was to say something to Mr. Honey-Do to get him “uptight.”
That was easy.
I just told him that as soon as the breakfast nook is done, we are moving on to the mudroom.
Piece of cake.
