Pinterest Challenge Reveal!

*TUTORIAL IS LIVE! Click HERE!

 

For those of you who regularly follow Young House Love, you’ll know that they issued a ‘Pinterest Challenge‘ along with Katie from Bower Power, Lana from Making a House a Home, and Emily Henderson from Style by Emily Henderson (AND Secrets from a Stylist). The purpose of all this is encouraging people to get out there and start creating all of the things we love and pin on Pinterest.

I’ve been pinning pictures of these ‘orb’ chandeliers because they are unique and versatile.  I’ve seen photos with sleek silver orbs in a traditional home, rustic bronzed spheres which could be from medieval times, wood ones, white ones, and on and on.

I have been dragging my feet on what type of light fixture to put in my office and I felt this was the perfect opportunity. It is something that catches my eye, and it can work well in my all-white meets country modern space, which I have yet to debut on the blog… but I will soon enough! In the meantime, I’ll give you a sneak peek of the light fixture update!

The ‘before’ was a cheap ceiling fan painted the same wonderful (sarcasm) caramel color as all of the room’s wood trim (who would do that?)

I hit Lowes and picked up some three-foot strips of aluminum and got to work with a ruler, rivets, and drill!  I quite like how it turned out, what do you think?

 

It was much easier than originally anticipated (thanks to my husband’s super smarts) and I will be posting a full tutorial tomorrow!!  As with everything I create, I am planning to make a duplicate to sell on my etsy store and will be documenting that creation a bit more carefully than I documented this one.

In the meantime, give me your thoughts!  Love it? Hate it?

Have a FANTASTIC Monday!

    This looks just amazing! I love that you used an Edison bulb to add to the rustic look. I know cfl bulbs are better for the environment and bla bla bla, but nothing is quite like a beautiful clear light bulb.

    Amazing! I’ve been coveting the one from Restoration Hardware and now just may give this a try! Great job!

    LOVE IT! I have pinned quite a few too and we just moved into a major fixer upper and I think this would be great above my stairwell. I am waiting in anticipation for the tutorial! :)
