There are so many lighting options, many of which are expensive. I decided to make a coffee filter light for our guest bedroom and that got my wheels turning. Here are a few other affordable, DIY options I threw around.
1. Spray paint an outdated chandelier.
2. Using Mod Podge to cover an ugly fixture with book pages, maps or another pretty paper to achieve an Anthropologie-esque feel.
4. Using wood veneer strips or iron on tape to create a Sarah Foote style light.
Here’s a great tutorial I think I’m going to try to replace the fan in the boys bedroom.
Of course, there are many other great DIY friendly lighting designs. What are your favorites? I’ve seen some cage pendants, but those don’t really fit my style, though I think they are cool. I’m open to any ideas, so share links, too!
