I recently switched out one of the light fixtures in our house that I had always hated since we bought the house and you wouldn’t believe what a difference it makes! It instantly transformed the look of the space and created a much more cohesive design rather than have the light fixture clash with all my other furniture and decor.
Light fixtures sure can get pricey though, so I rounded up my favorite DIY chandeliers and light fixtures you can make for a fraction of the price. I also included a link at the end to the light fixture I just purchased for our dining room and am TOTALLY in love with!
1. Wooden Bead Chandelier
This is seriously the best DIY version I have seen of these expensive wood bead chandeliers from the store. (via Designer Trapped)
2. Upcycled Globe Pendant Light
I love the theme of maps in home decor and these repurposed old globe lights are one of a kind and super creative. I love the look of this globe light fixture above, but I kept getting a security warning when trying to visit the site. Since I didn’t want to send you anywhere questionable, you can check out this tutorial to recreate the look above.
