Blue Hand Home Lighting & Some DIY ones!

    I've been fascinated by chandeliers as well as all types of hanging lights for quite some time. My favorites are 'empire chandeliers' , they're beautifully decorated with such character! Eventually, I'd LOVE to own one for my future dining room area!
    Recently, I was introduced to Blue Hand Home Interiors which happens to carry the most beautiful chandelier (the 6 light Versailles with sea glass) ever made!

    Feel free to take a look at their site for other interesting lighting which I'm certain you'll like!

    Speaking of lighting, if you're the TYPICAL do-it-yourself type and don't want to spend $1000's of dollars on a new fixture, here are some brilliant, alternative DIY ideas!

    The 1st DIY project is: "How to Make a Beaded Chandelier". 

    Project Materials:
    • Hanging wire basket, $1
    • 6 packages of Mardi Gras-style metallic beads (about 48 necklaces), $6
    • Light gauge wire (floral wire will work), $1
    • Spray paint, $1
    • Wire cutters, on hand or $1
    • Hot glue gun & sticks, on hand
    • Additional embellishments, as desired

    The 2nd DIY project is: "How to Make a Whirl-it Lampshade"

    2 balls of Ice og 1 ball Lerke, or other yarn, preferably cotton or acrylic.

    Stick to mix the glue and the yarn
    Gloves, if you don't like it messy
    Something to hang the lamp by. We used IKEAs rice lamp hanging device (bottom right), and cut the long bits off
