Eek! What a privilege to be here sharing a project while Holly welcomes her new little one! I'm a huge fan of her creativity and inspiration, so it's a pleasure to be here. I'm Kelly and I blog at View Along the Way. That's me there with my little fam.
Mostly I blog about our attempts to fix up a nasty ol' foreclosure on a teensy little budget. We've come a long way, but you know how it goes: the end is nowhere in sight! Let me give you an example. We've lived with bare, hanging lightbulbs all over the house for years, like here in our office.
It's shameful how long we've lived like this, you guys. Shameful. But we're all about finding cheap, do-it-yourself solutions, so when I spotted this fancy-schmancy light (for $550!) at Horchow, I thought it was gorgeous and was determined to make my own.
You can check out all the details for how we made our DIY capiz shell chandelier HERE, but we turned this tea light holder I found at TJMaxx...
...into a DIY hanging light just like the Horchow version, for about 90 percent off. Hard to beat that price! Here's how the end result turned out:
See all the details HERE.
It was relatively quick and painless and I'm so happy with the result! Quick-fix updates that look expensive but are not are my favorite kind of project. You can see more of my projects - including the most popular ones - right here on my project gallery.
I hope you'll subscribe to the blog via RSS or follow me on facebook, twitter or pinterest for more projects just like this. I'd love to connect with you, and I hope you'll come along for the ride! Pin It Now!
