DIY Pendant Lamp

Hello blogging world! 

I am not dead.


And with that intro, let's move on. For Christmas, my husband found this amazing vanity at the D.I. We started redoing it almost immediately, so I didn't quite get a chance to snap a before picture.


Here it is in the process of repainting.



And here it is, finished! BEAUTIFUL.


However, in order to do my makeup, I needed a light source. We had an old pendant lamp from Ikea, but I didn't like the shape of it. Here's what I came up with instead:





To start, you need the basket from a hanging planter, spray paint, a wire crystal garland, and a pendant lamp kit { I think you can find them at home improvement stores}.

First, spray paint your basket. If you like.



Then, take your garland and just haphazardly wrap it around the basket however you like. You could use anything you wanted to wrap the basket- rope, pearls...get creative!






Then, we just zip-tied the light to the top of the basket. 


Amazingly simple.




I can't believe I get to do my makeup & jewelry in front of this!
