Chandelier (Time for a Change)

Newer Older

Last week I found an old world atlas, with pages just the right size for our "clip" chandelier. I really like how I catch glimpses of map on the backs of each page as I walk by.

bricolagelife, Sweetington, and 66 other people added this photo to their favorites.

    I saw this style chandelier in a shop using postcards as a shade and instantly wanted it. Both your shots are great. The atlas pages give it a unified summery look the other seems more winterlike. How wonderful you were able to get one made. I'd love to see the structure and how it was made.
    You've really worked on these rooms since the first shot too-lovely.

    I have an old worldmap to put on the wall. I adore these old and faded colors!
    Very clever idea for your lamp :)

    prima seadiva, thanks so much for your sweet comments about the chandelier, and the house; it will forever be a work-in-progess!
    I'll check to see if I've got any photos of the chandelier without any paper covering the framework. If I find any, I'll let you know.

    Thank you sandfisher and Els Vlieger. I was inspired by a chandelier I saw in a Pottery Barn catalog a few years ago, so I can't take credit for the general idea, but my husband and I came up with a similar design we could make ourselves.

    crimsoncat05, I guess I should have included you in my last reply, I answered your question up there (point up to the comment above this one). ( ;

    Do you have any instructions you can offer for creating a chandelier like this, as Pottery Barn has discontinued it? :(

    Hi Lollie! I know this is short notice, but I'm an editor for thenester.com & I'm writing to see if you would allow us to use this photo for a post we are working on for tomorrow. It's a post that is going to highlight several pendant lights & we found yours in Pinterest land but I wanted to get your permission to use it. If you have any questions, please contact me: nestingplacehome@gmail.com
