I am excited to share this with you all today. I came across this project on pinterest about a year ago ( **I am not claiming this to be my original idea), but it did “pinspire” me. I found 2 different sites that did their own spin on this project here and here. I have been wanting to do this project for some time now, but when I found it I realized it wouldn’t work in my apartment at the time. My apartment came with amazing fixtures already, and I didn’t want to mess with them.
In case you didn’t know….
I have been working on making over my parents bedroom since November 2013. It all started with their striped accent wall tutorial, and if you haven’t seen it click here.
I must first say that my mom is an avid reader. She loves going downstairs to read after a long day at work to un-wind. So I thought, she needed a reading corner in the room so she doesn’t have to store all of her books etc right next to her bed. Part of their makeover is eliminating clutter. I am doing my best to get lessen their hoarding (still a work in progress). THEY HAVE SO MUCH STUFF! But I must say after my move last weekend… the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree. LOL. I need to de-hoard as well.
Ahem…On to the project I wanted to show you all! I wanted give my mom an overhead lamp of some sort to free up some ground space. Since we are on a budget, the thought dawned on my to pursue THIS project that I have wanted to do forever! This lovely Coffee Filter Ruffled Pendant Lamp. I should tell you all now, this project will take up an entire day. I used a total of 800 coffee filters on this one lamp alone, and could have easily used more. I am not kidding. So if you want to pursue this project, know that going into it. It worked out great for me because I just watched a marathon of Pawn Stars while folding and hot gluing.
I hope you all enjoy this project!! What do you think? Please Comment, Pin, and Share! I would love tohear some feedback.
Let me know if you have any questions.
