DIY bubble chandelier from JARA lampshade!

Materials: Lampshade, scissors, sisal rope, acrylic balls, gold leaf, grey paint.

Description: At first I painted the lampshade with my favorite grey paint.
Then I coat the inside of the lampshade with gold leaf. I left it a little bit messy and shabby looking.

After installing the bulb holder I wrapped the cable with sisal rope and glued it.
After that I had a little help with hanging it in my bedroom ;)

That how it looked without the bubbles.

And here are they stepping in the game;)

And here is the Lamp in my room, in my reading nook;)

    The added bubbles look fantastic! I stumbled across your site when search for local Ikea stores and you are so creative with your adaptations. Will definitely continue to follow.

  3. If this is an attic bedroom, you need a recliner! A nice little getaway to read a book, have a snooze or both…

    Transparent balls?? That looks tempting. Anyway nice craft idea. I think we can hang the balls just like that without attaching it to the lamp. Even that would look nice.
