I’ve been dying to change out all of the standard builder lights in my home. I’ve been slowly working on my living room one piece at a time and the next step was the hideous light.  That flush mount light was just down right horrid and I was really getting sick of staring at it. I found an awesome tutorial for this hanging basket chandelier over at Vintage Revivals. Mandi is one talented woman I tell ya! You should see what she just did to her neighbors living room.

Here is the “before” picture of the lovely flush mount light.

Here is the “after” with the hanging basket chandelier. Much better!

I covered my chain and cord with a cord cover. I think it warmed it up a little more.

My favorite thing about my new chandelier is the awesome shadows it casts onto the ceiling. It adds a little more detail when you flip on the switch! The other awesome thing about this light is the cost…. $25 bucks! I bought my old chandelier light from the DI thrift store and my two baskets from Lowe’s were about $20. You cant beat that! I now have a new problem…. I want to make one of these for every single room in my house! If you want to make one yourself head on over to Mandi’s site and check out her tutorial! Happy Friday!

Next up on the list…curtains!
