Dream Home Lighting...Fabulous DIY light fixture. Our dining room had this fixture that was decent in appearance but gave off a really depressing bright light. So instead I made the fixture below using two 3′ wreath frames, wire, black wired Christmas lights, a stripped extension cord and chains.
For the Dining Room?? DIY chandelier. Repurpose a metal frame ring or hoola hoop; add holiday fair twinkle lights; indoors or a patio lighting fixture; upcycle, recycle, repurpose, salvage! For ideas and goods shop at Estate ReSale ReDesign, Bonita Springs, FL
This is from another pinner! Great Idea!
NEW!! I had a couple people ask where I bought the chandelier. However, I had something very specific in mind when I was decorating and could not find anything even close to what I was looking for. So I made it myself. The only advice I can give is how I did it. I took a regular extension cord, cut off the plug, striped the wires and hardwired it into the ceiling. I bought a ceiling plate at Lowes and screwed four eyelet screws into it so that I had something to hang the black chandelier chains from (also bought at Lowes). From the chains, I hung two 3' wreath frames together with floral wire, then finally wrapped brown christmas lights (which were the hardest to find) around the frame and plugged them into the extension cord which I hid inside the chain. Complicated? It sounds a little but to be honest it was easier than I had anticipated.
