Holly's Dot to Dot

As some of you may recall I am in the process of redoing Holly's room. I am happy to say that her new bed will be arriving over the weekend. Finally, I can get to the fun part. The room has been painted (touches still needed). I decided to work on her chandelier in her room. It's an antique and both my girls have them. It needed some whimsy with her new decor. The following is the process. So simple.

Boring Chandelier




Plain Lamps Shades 6 @ $.80 each



Glue gun, glue sticks, scissors and trim




Simply glue together and TaDa a little whimsy



I am starting to get excited to put it all together. Wish me luck.

This looks so good so far! I thought you were just going to do the ball fringe and then you put the ribbon on there and that MADE IT!! Too Cute!!! Can't wait to see the bedding

I love this! The chandelier was nice before, but it's fabulous now! So perfect for a girls room! I hope you'll share the rest of the room with us soon!

Can't wait to see the rooms. I'll echo what another blogger asked: where in the world did you find those shades for .80 each? Inquiring minds what to know!!!
