DIY Lighting

When you’re decorating, you quickly realize the expense of two things – chairs (OHMYGOD) and lighting. Chairs are easy to find at thrift stores and the like to make-over, but what about affordable lighting?

These bubble chandeliers retail for some pretty insane prices – click here to make an equally as beautiful version at home!

Talk about affordable! Using old lace doilies, glue, a balloon, and a pendant light (Ikea now has swag light cords and fixtures in black and white for around$6.00) you can create your very own beautiful fixture! Click here for instructions!

    Never thought of a chandelier made out of the lace doilies — very cool. I can even imagine it being spray painted in darker colors and letting the light shine through the cut-outs. thanks for sharing the idea!
