Okay, this is such an easy DIY...everyone must do this! Have you seen the orb chandeliers? I have one hanging in my living room and I love it! They are pricey though! Ballard and Restoration Hardware both sell them and they start at $400 and go to $1000.
I recently came across this iron orb at Z gallerie. I was so surprised to pick it up and see that it was only $20! Light inspiration hit!
And here it is! My $45 version! We ran two of the chain links around the top of the orb to attach the pieces together. It looks a little oblong in the picture, but it is a perfect circle.
As much as I would love to keep this one, it is for a client design. Remember this rustic office design? I can't wait to see it all lit up in its happy new home! I think the round bulbs would look best as opposed to traditional chandelier bulbs, don't you?
Here was the inspiration from Ballard.
