I'm still enjoying the pictures I took about a month ago. Many of the pictures I took knowing that I wanted to recreate the coastal decor elements that so inspired me!
This lamp diy is the first in in many to come from my model home inspiration.
I love this lamp! I don't currently need a lamp of this size. Although I might make one in the future, if the need arises.
For now though, our hallway light has been long over due for an upgrade! As you can see from the pic below, it's not a pretty sight and the blurry photo doesn't help! Most of the time, it's been easy to ignore. But whenever I notice it, it makes me cringe a little.
I tell myself that the rusty look is "in", but in this case, it was unintentionally caused from being too close to the bathroom shower. And it doesn't look or feel very "in" to me!
I went to the hardware store to buy some rust covering paint. I walked past the rope isle and I remembered the model home lamp. So I bought 50' of sisal rope as well. And my idea was born! Make a smaller version of the inspiration lamp.
I tried to fashion a wire closure, but that was an epic fail, so I decided to make it easy on myself and use string, which worked like a charm!
OK, two more blurry pictures, while trying to figure out how to hang my new creation with more wire, which also was another epic fail, I used string again. It was so much easier and worked much better!
Any way, here it is. It cost roughly 6-7 dollars including the light bulb!
I think it has a nice coastal vibe!
