Hope you all had a safe and enjoyable Halloween. I (meaning, my boyfriend) finally finished another project. I had gotten the idea from Thrifty Decor Chick for a drum shade chandelier. It wasn't long after I read this post that I found a giant lampshade from the Salvation Army.
|So Cleopatra! I did consider keeping it this way. Kinda cool.|
To hang this lamp, I picked up a swag kit and the lamp bulb kit. This is where the boyfriend comes in. I wasn't sure how to screw this stuff together and my boyfriend is very handy. All I needed to do was ask him a few times to do this for me and then I brought it all to him while he was watching NASCAR. Bless him, any other man would have told me to beat it (not in these same words). He put the lamp together and then he installed my swag hooks so I could hang the lamp.
|Looks cool, huh? Until you turn on the light.|
