These are one of the last posts I am doing on my DIY projects before I show you the final product of my girl's room. I'm wrapping up the last piece of furniture and then it's a go. This is the chandelier I wish I had. The shades were $17 ea. + shipping. No way Jose (btw that just happens to beez my pappy's name)!!
This is what I had. I borrowed the chandelier shade image from ebaY. I have to tell you tho, mine looked exactly the same but with tacky cheap gold trim!! I ripped the fabric off the shades on the ride home from goodwill, where I got them for $1 ea. The chandelier I bought for $10 brand new off of Bargainland when they had kick butt house stuff for sale. You wouldn't believe the goodies I've bought for uber cheap.
These are the things I used for this e-z p-z project. Some fake roses (wish I would've waited until after Valentine's when the roses go on clearance :o( ), hot glue, thin pink ribbon, chandy shades, & scissors.
After removing all the glue, fabric, & tape??, that was originally the trim, I glued 2 rows of pink ribbon. I glued 2 only because I needed to hide some of the hot glue spots from the previous janky DIY done on these shades.
This is what it looks like after. You can do a thicker ribbon or just one thin ribbon. I think little pearl beads would've been pretty too.
Here's another view in good lighting.
Honestly, What do you think? Overdone? Just right? Should I have used any other type of flowers? I have two lamps on her dresser, should I put some little roses on those shades or just some ribbon? Or just skip both? That is an issue I have been struggling with lately. I haven't done anything to them b/c I'm not sure I should. What do you think?
