Craft Room Light

I really am very close to getting this room completed! I also have a lovely new light and I save $177 so I am pretty darn happy!



I was reading about hanging new light fixtures and how to save money doing it over at Miss Flibbertigibbet she has such a beautiful home and her lighting is amazing! Anyway, this black light is what I wanted for my craft room, but not at $199. Anyway after reading her post I decided to look around for some cheaper options.


I was going to make my one when I spotted this in Kmart for $15 but they didn't  have black.



So I grabbed some black paint and fabric medium, which I had on hand.


And painted that baby!


I bought a DIY pendant kit for $7 and there she is!


Couldn't have been any easier and I save $177 for a slightly smaller version of the light I wanted.



 DIY Delight or Disaster? Saved money and I have my little pendant light, delight!! What do you think?
Do yourself a favor and check out  Miss Flibbertigibbet  her home is what my house wants to be when it grows up....sadly it will probably only happen if another person moves in and does it!

Thanks for reading,
