Well the other weekend, while my husband was out of town, I came across a project on one of my favorite design blogs Parlour Home . She had made a light that left me breathless and dying to try it! The problem was that I had a ton of other stuff to get done. For one thing I had promised myself I was actually going to clean and I had freelance work backing up and I was supposed to be finishing clocks for my upcoming spot in a local art show.
After going back to her blog and drooling over the pictures, I knew it was not happening and I took the Bean out to collect my supplies. This was the easiest (if not the most time consuming project) I have taken on and I am drooling at the effect so I thought I would share it with you all.
First, I went to Pier One and grabbed a paper lantern for under $10. Second I bought a box store out of their small coffee filters and then home I went. That night when I put Bean to bed, I did not clear the dishes from the sink, I did not even look at my laptop and I certainly did not work on my clocks.
I poured myself a large glass of wine, rented the kind of cheesy romantic comedy that would surely have my husband groaning and I got to work. Now I wish I could say I finished that night but alas three long nights later I was just approaching the end, still the result has my inner crafty mom beaming with pride as I dream up my second attempt. (I wonder if you can dye coffee filters?)
My materials and Personal Assistant- Murphy
Day 1- Seriously that was an entire romantic comedy and an episode and a half of Project Runway
Day 2 - My finger has a burn blister but it is taking shape and I am giddy with anticipation
Day 3 - and I ran out of coffee filters...DOLT!
Installed! And I wish I knew why this picture will not load correctly!
Let There Be Light!
