Poor Man’s Chandelier
November 20, 2013 by caitlin
Remember back when I posted about bookshelves and mentioned the little spiky blue star that I made out of this tutorial?
Well, it floated around our house for a few months because I didn’t know what to do with it, and I finally decided to hang it in the hallway (kind of like a sad cheap chandelier), so it would add more interest to the corner.
Pretty boring, right? That corner is pretty funky too, since the ceiling drops down about 6 inches when you head into the hallway.
Since the star itself is super lightweight, I only used a small eye hook to hang it with thin string.
See? Easy. It did take me a few times to get the height right, but once it was right I tied it off with a square knot and so far, it’s been great.
So much better, right? I love that it brings a little more interest into the corner.
I’d love to one day make an actual hanging pendant in this shape. I think it would look so gorgeous!
It kind of makes me want to lay in the corner and look up at it all day!! Have you ever done something like this for visual interest in your house? Share!!
Oh, and PS: this is my 400th post! How did that happen!?
