One of Lauren’s favorite elements from her baby boy’s nautical theme nursery is a rope chandelier she created from a thrift store find. Lauren shares at From Our Hiding Place how she transformed the $10 chandy into an eye-catching piece with just a roll of twine and a hot glue gun. While time-consuming, Lauren says it was the “easiest DIY project ever.”

Turn a Boring Chandy into a Stylish Orb Chandelier

Were you blown away by the beautiful orb chandelier I shared from Jen at Tatertots and Jello this morning? As promised, tonight Shelley from House of Smith’s stunning light fixture is in the spotlight. Starting with a store-bought chandy, Shelley created the orb effect with fencing wire and gave it a fresh finish with white paint. I love what Shelley has to say about her new entryway light… “She’s definitely large and in charge, but that’s what I LOVE about her! She adds some more drama to the space, and almost acts as an art piece as well as a light fixture!”

While cleaning, Dawn from Creative Cain Cabin accidentally broke one of the pendant light globes in her bathroom. Doh! Unfortunately, it wasn’t the first time Dawn had broken a globe, and she was done scouring stores for an identical match to finally just purchase two of the  “least offensive” option.  Dawn found a solution she LOVED by creating mason jar pendants with vintage Edison bulbs. Now Dawn will never have to worry about finding a matching replacement globe again!

When faced with the expense of needing to replace ALL of the interior light fixtures, Jaime came up with a more budget-friendly version of the trendy Edison bulb sconces for her pool room. The style is the perfect addition to an old home with so much history and character.
