Chandelier revamp - Part 2!


I posted about this project here to explain the wire frame of this shade. Since we were having a party this past weekend, I wanted to get it up in the dining room.   I used a hot glue gun to attach the fabric:




And look what arrived last week via UPS?




I ordered this indoor/outdoor rug from Frontgate & it arrived 2 days later!  I am really happy with this rug & the quality.   I was inspired by this post from the awesome blog  Knight Moves where she used this rug in her office and I thought it would work well in our dining room. Thanks Kyle for the post & the inspiration. 






I am really happy with how it all turned out and I promise, no more dining room posts!!

  3. No! I love your dining room posts! Partially because we are about to revamp our dining room- I think it is the hardest room in the house to decorate.

    I also like that you used an outdoor rug- we did that in the hallway and they are much more durable, IMO.

  9. That is awesome that you made that shade all by yourself! That chandelier is gorgeous, by the way, almost a shame to cover it up!

  11. I can't believe those two changes could alter the look of your room so much. I love that rug, it has a timeless quality to it and could be used in any number of rooms.

  12. How clever and it instantly updates your already gorgeous chandelier. Your dining room has come a long way and it looks fabulous. I'm partial to grey these days too.

  13. Wow, that looks so beautiful! I love drum shades over chandeliers, but you are right, they are pricey. Your whole dining room just looks beautiful, I love the transformation. Great job.

  19. Beautiful shade. I too am looking into covering my outdated brass chandelier without having to take the entire light down. Can you please let me know how you twist the wires together to form the shade and how you were able to attach the shade to the light?? Thank you in advance. lngasca@yahoo.com
