DIY chandelier...

I am going for it. This little guy that I spied over at The Brick House has had my brain in a constant debate..."Looks easy!", "Gosh, I don't know?", "How hard can it be? I should just go for it!" I said, I am going for it. Our vintage Brunswick pool table has been in dire need of proper lighting and I am sure that this chandelier will look perfect over it. I will let you know how we make out...

  1. i bet yours will be even better! way to go for it!!!

  2. I have always loved this fixture and the original one it was inspired by ($$$$). Good luck! I can't wait to see how it turns out!
    P.S, dig the new blog layout!

  4. It wasn't hard! Well, my husband looked like he was having an easy time, at least ;)
    We did strip a wire trying to jam so many of them through one narrow spot, which shorted out the wiring after a few weeks! We had to re-do the whole thing. If you haven't already made it, let us know if you have any questions...the second time I think my husband got thinner electrical wire (i.e. the kind used for vacuum cleaner cords??) and it went much better.

    1. it's done! so easy...thank you for the advice. i used exactly what lindsay adelman posted on the supplies list and it worked out fine. let's hope it lasts! it was fun jamming the ground wire and cloth covered main guy through my 36" rod...i will post a little ditty soon.
