New Dining Room Pendant only $43!!!
Did you guys notice when I posted our paint makeover last month that we also changed out our dinning room light? Although I love the one we had, it always seemed a bit too small for the room, especially when the table is extended to it’s full length.
I’d been wanting to replace it for a while, but boy are lights expensive.
Since we’ve been working on the nursery, I decided our old light would be perfect up there, so it was time to get serious and keep my eyes peeled. And that’s when I spotted THIS beauty at Ikea.
Can you believe this massive shade is only $25?!
I already had a cord ($5), but I needed a new mount for the ceiling. I had no luck at Lowes or Home Depot, but found this lovely one for only $15 at West Elm.
Now the only problem was the cord. If you buy a pendant light usually them come with mount, cord, cord cover and the light, but because I built this piece by piece, I couldn’t find a cord cover and the cord alone looked too thin and cheap.
Then inspiration struck: wrap the cord in string. So that’s what I did. I found the thickest string I could at Ace, and got to work, and I’m happy to report it only took about 20 mins!
What do you think?
Not to shabby hey?
