Blogging helps me with my compulsion of changing things up all the time. Since deciding to redo my living room, I have taken on too many projects. It slows a girl down!
Do you remember this white birdcage on my French Provincial buffet?
I sold the buffet but kept the birdcage. I had plans for it!
So I got inside and screwed in a hook to hold my chandelier. It was pretty simple. I bought a chandelier from IKEA for 39.99.
Ok so it is not Restoration hardware but it doesn't have that price tag either!
I painted it coral inside and out and hung the chandelier in the center.
See that column? I wanted to use it as a base mixing the old with the new.
I grabbed my new RYOBI Airstriker and drill and added a base to my column for stability.
I set the wood in place with the brads and grabbed my drill to pre-drill holes for the screws. I then counter sunk the screws to protect my floor from getting scratched.
Once attached I just had to stand it up and screw the birdcage to the top.
I love the ambiance and texture it gives when the light is on at night.
My knock off
Since I had everything the only cost to me was the IKEA chandelier for 39.99
and a sample pot of paint Free with coupon!
I say I did pretty good!
The best part is I can change the color anytime with paint! For now it is a great feature for the new living room!
Would love to know what you think! Leave me a comment!
See it in the living room here!
