So back to the chandelier, a long time ago I was in the sale room at Anthropologie and saw this awesome chandelier made of rope. I then saw some similar ones at Restoration Hardware.
So a light bulb went off (sorry), I can do that with my boring, came with the house, wrought iron chandelier in my dining room.
Here is what I used:
Clips (to hold cord in place)
So I got to wrapping...
Here are a few tips for those of you wanting to give it a try:
- I tried not to cut the cord so I wasn't piecing them together mid way.
- Use clips or clothes pins to hold the end in place while the glue dries
- You don't need a ton of glue. I would line one side with glue then wrap the cord tight around the arm of the chandeller. The glue would spread itself around all sides of the arm.
- Pace yourself. I thought this would be a quick and easy project. I ended up doing it in sections because I would get tired.
Here is how it turned out
Now I am thinking my dining room needs a new wall color. Grey or White, maybe?
Happy Friday! Check out I Love That's Facebook Page to keep up with all thats going on around here.
