I keep looking at this pitiful chandelier that must be redone. And I have not the heart to even photo it for the audience. Not yet, at least. When Im ready to jazz it up, perhaps. Meanwhile, this is what I am looking at and dreaming of….. found on interior design on a dime, this pretty has been swathed in beads……
DIY Chandeliers sound painful, no? Apparently, there are some people out there who have mastered the art. For example, a blogger living in Dubai, Lisa Roy Muskoka, who had trouble resourcing some parts, came up with the keen idea of using wax paper to mimic shells. Here was the piece she wanted:
Here was the piece she made!!!
Come on! She ironed sets of three pieces of wax paper together and then cut circles and then used taupe thread to sew them into lines and attached them to an ornament holder found at Crate
& Barrel. Holy Crap. I cant even iron leaves with Ava. Okay. This is brilliantly beautifully. Full props. For details on the project, click on her name above.
I am thinking I am going to need some enamel paint and strings of gorgeous beads. Micro beads perhaps? Look at this sweetness….Is this metal microbead? Damn. So Sexy.
I dont know the source on this one–although I have seen some metal micro-beaded work before. There was a designer who crafted all of his furniture with hanging metal-micro beads. His whole house was outfitted in metal micro-beads. Must find that guy.
Project Decor has this gothic wonder in metal micro, although it costs around $2,500.00. Hmmnn. Yep. Diy is gonna have to work it.
This is really neat!!! An entirely new look….Forget the beads and such. Also doable….Compliments of Remodelaholic, this is based off of Restoration Hardware’s chandelier:
