Let there be light!

Here's my reveal - finally - the my CB2 delivery, 
I MADE A BUBBLE LIGHT CHANDELIER! 
I've been eying these DIY bubble chandeliers for some time now and just never had the right spot for it. That was until I re-did the bathroom. I found this fabulous mirror on craigslist and fell in love with it, I had to have it.
 
Once I painted it white, of course, and we hung it up, it just completely clashed with our standard boring bathroom light fixture. The detailing on top of the mirror touched the wall mount and the shape was just not right. That's when I thought a chandelier would be the perfect solution - then I thought Bubble Light Chandelier! and a few months later.. that's what we have!
It was a piece of cake to make and if you're interested go here: {here} Rachel from the Small Notebook did a WAY better job at a tutorial than I ever could. But here's a pictorial of what I did.
Much better - I love it! The only thing left to do is hide the cord going up the wall. I'm thinking I need to get something like {this} then paint it to blend in with the wall. to be continued...

  3. Super fun! Those cords are definitely an eye sore. I think it's a good idea to hide them with those things! Can't wait to see it!
