And cording was attached on the top.
My supplies list would look like this:
- Old, ugly, bare chandelier
- Spray paint
- Washer-top lamp ring
- Plain bottom lamp ring
- Chicken wire
- Feather boas
- Small rope cording
- Large rope cording
- Fine gauge wire (for assembly)
- Hot glue and gun
As I said, I haven't done it, and I just barely found this light fixture here, but I imagine that assembly would go like this:
- Clean and spray paint old, ugly chandelier. Let dry.
- Cut chicken wire to fit around the lamp rings, and produce the desired height. (Washer-top ring is the top.)
- Build frame by wiring chicken wire to lamp rings.
- Attach feather boas to frame with wire.
- Hot glue rope cording around the top edge.
- Fit washer-top ring around your freshly painted chandelier.
- Install in ceiling.
So, really, why oh why would anyone pay $23k when they could make it for a fraction of that cost? Does anyone have any thought on improvements/problems with my DIY plan?
