West Elm has an awesome capiz shell chandelier right now for $269. I’ve admired it, but like Freshly Picked, it is out of my price range. After seeing Design Sponge make a similar chandelier, Freshly Picked tried one herself. The results are amazing. See below.
She used the frame of an old lampshade. Inverted it, added wire to the middle, and started creating the circles that will hang on it. The circles are made from wax paper.
They took the old glass piece off the existing light, added hooks, and hung their new creation.
Here it is lit.
And, get this – the total cost of their chandelier was $9.
I think this may be a future project for me. What about you? Only problem is, I can’t cut circles… I do need a Silhouette. Can they cut wax paper? Or, I could just use a “circle cutter!” I’m sure they are cheaper.
Also don’t forget to enter the e-design plan giveaway! The drawing is tomorrow night.
