DIY Orb Chandelier


Welcome to this week's addition of Wonderfully Made Lighting! I am sorry if you are getting tired of all my lighting posts...but last weekend I read that updating lighting is one of the best ways to fix up a house! Check and check! This is a project I have always wanted to try and I was found this Orb at TJ Maxx:


It was only $10 and the perfect size!  Here was the original light...


I don't know about y'all but I saw some serious potential. 


How about now?


Okay, now!


I took all the parts I was going to use and spray painted them with ORB spray paint.  Tall Tan Man was able to cut through the top of the Orb with his dremel and drill.  Similar to, The Bachelor this week; there were sparks flying!


I re-attached the original part of the chandelier.


For old time sake here is what we started with:



I think we have made quiet an improvement!  I have been scouring all over for some real living room chairs that don't cost a stupid amount of money. 



I am pretty excited about our $10 light!




Alright, I am ready to get this week over so I can head to the mountains!
