There's nothing like a good DIY to get the blood flowing in the morning. This is our closet. Can you guess what's hanging over the light? Yep. It's a bowl.
I found it some time ago at Home Goods when I was on a spray painting kick - You know - when you suddenly have the urge to find things just so you can transform them with spray paint. This was a black metal bowl that became white then sat in my cabinet for close to a year. Now it's a woodsy chandelier. I bet it didn't see that one coming.
Here's how I did it:
The light in the first photo washes out the detail. Here, you can see how it's suspended.
*(4) 10lb drywall screw mounts (probably overkill, but that's what I had in my toolbox)
*(4) screw hooks (I used the kind for hanging coffee cups, but you can also use eyelit screws)
*silver florist wire (If you don't have florist wire in your DIY toolkit, I highly recommend you add it. I've found dozens of uses for it)
*power drill (This was a gift from my parents to my husband, but somehow I've used it the most. haha)
First, I measured and marked the four corners for my drill holes. Next I used a power drill for the areas I marked and inserted (4) small drywall screw mounts. Then I twisted the hooks into the mounts. Using the florist wire, I made little loops and attached to the bowl for hanging. That's it. I finished this before I even had my morning coffee.
It's a simple light upgrade and it really adds character to our modern woodland bedroom.
