And now I am even wondering…what was I thinking? Oh yeah, I remember now…authenticity for preserving my 73 year old log cabin…. anyway I have stressed over my light choices in the living room after I chanced upon a chandelier at the Goodwill. I kept asking myself how I am going to do this…truth be told its way too large, I can’t use it, and I have to come up with something else. Since I think I only paid $15 for the chandelier I figured I would re-purpose the base into something for the yard and use the loose crystal pieces in some light contraption I come up with…no harm, no foul Right? Right. Thanks.
I once again scoured the Internet looking for ideas. I fell in love with this kind of sophisticated look but I need something with an ethnic twist. Middle Eastern, SE Asian Indian glamor. LOL I have to pull this living room together somehow… a turquoise wall, a plum/taupe/burgundy couch a black/gold/red tomato ottoman, a green/black/red and gold Indian tapestry oh goodness as I look around its giving me a headache.
I don’t read Chinese but I get the idea
You do understand what inspiration for me means right? It means I like the concept and I will use that to do my own thing and while it may have some “thread of similarity” it probably will be waaaaaaay different. That’s just how I roll. The things I need are:
- drum light shade
- some extra crystals, wire and stringing
The rest I will be winging cause I have no freaking clue what I am doing… all I know is that I want to do it. I looked around for a drum shade and wow they are almost impossible to find under $35. I am TOO CHEAP for that. I went on the Internet to find some crystals and ummm… can’t afford those either.
Each night after work I been going to the stores looking for supplies. Tonight I went shopping in Hancocks Fabric because everything was 30% off and I had a coupon for an additional 20% off one item. Of course I went crazy in that joint. That’s why my craft drawer is so full hee hee. I got a deal on a lamp shade….FINALLY
You are probably wondering WHAT DA HELL?
Yeah me too.
I hope I don’t mess this up…shhhhhh don’t tell anybody
More to come…
