There are tons of little projects going on in our apartment right now – a vintage chair with a broken leg in need of repair, figuring out the best way to hang our big mirror on the cinderblock wall, and especially finding a cool shade for the random, utilitarian bulb hanging from the ceiling in our kitchen. It’s right above where a dining table would be, but our little desk is there instead. Since it’s Tom’s study space, I want it to be a shade that’s not too girly, which means I’ll probably have to resort to another DIY project. (Oh, darn!)
Here are the candidates:
I wouldn’t be making a chandelier, but I think the idea is simple and outdoors-y, which is quintessentially my husband.
This is very vintage-y, and would go with our decor.
I remember doing projects like this as a kid! You get messy with glue and pop a balloon – so cool.
I’m really digging the string lampshade right now, maybe in a different color. What do you think?
