Tasha from Designer Trapped in a Lawyer’s Body turned quilting hoops into a beautifully-shaped wood pendant light for her family. Tasha made just a couple of changes from her West Elm inspiration, including a darker stain color and socket adapter to allow for more light. That’s what you gotta love about DIY – you get exactly what you want for way less, in this case $150 less!
This DIY mercury glass pendant is the very first project Tricia shared on her new blog Simplicity in the South. She had been wanting to try out Krylon’s Looking Glass spray paint, and this was the perfect opportunity to give it a go. With a few coats of the paint, Tricia made an inexpensive shade from Lowes look like the $400 one she’d been drooling over!
Tricia from Simplicity in the South wanted to replace the bare bulb in the ceiling of her son’s closet-turned-workspace. She was inspired by a caged pendant light that appealed to her vintage style and was able to replicate the look with supplies she ordered online. Tricia’s knockoff is the spitting image of her RH inspiration and cost only a third of the price!
