Another quick project to share with you guys. I decided I wanted to jazz up my dining room chandelier by adding a hit of colour. I thought about fabric or wallpaper but then decided on a string d.i.y. I checked out the dollar store but couldn't find yellow which is my colour of choice. They had a great pink and green if you decide to try it. Only a dollar for a new light. Not bad. Eventually I found some yellow at Walmart, 225 yards for $4. I used a glue gun and wound the string around, not difficult but time consuming. It took me an hour or so while watching t.v. Then I ended up with a jazzy yellow striped shade and a sore back but it was worth it!
It's easier than you think sometimes to change it up. There are supplies and ideas everywhere. Look around and try something!
