Beaded Hanging Lamp - Buy a hanging lamp kit from the hardware store or IKEA. Use wood beads (natural, stain or paint them) with 1/2" hole or drill hole so they slide onto the cord easily. Cut off the plug and thread beads onto the cord to your liking. Rewire the plug and hang from ceiling using a hook. What an awesome lamp!
The kitchen expands into the open family room space, emerging beneath an immense vaulted ceiling with a red brick upper dividing wall. Rich dark hardwood flooring contrasts with light grey tones on the button tufted sofa, area rug, and bar stools. All-glass cubic coffee table sits in foreground, with built-in island shelving in white behind.
