DIY INDUSTRIAL CHANDELIER!

ITS EASTER AND I HAVE BEEN AWAY FOR SOME DAYS… that being said, I haven’t let down all my homey-projects, actually I´ve been figuring out what to do with the light in my kitchen.

I´ve had this beautiful 12-arms antique chandelier in my kitchen, and oh yes I loved it when I bought it and I still do, it just doesn’t fit anymore – it disturbs my eye 😉 So I decided that I wanted to make a new chandelier this Easter – it had to be industrial and real low budget! This is what happened…

I went to my grandparents house and exactly as I was assuming my granddad had a spare iron pipe in his shed! I would have loved a copper pipe, but they are a bit more pricy and I did not have the patience to wait for the construction-store to open. Thank god for spray paint! Next step was to make a hole in each end of the pipe and attach the chains. All I needed now was a light chain, and I found this cool and rough one in a Swedish shop for only 450SEK, check out GRANIT shop. I am really excited about the result, how do you like it? 🙂

And for the Danes..

Det er påske og jeg har været et smut væk! Dermed ikke sagt, at jeg ikke har tænkt over alle mine små projekter! Hele ugen har jeg tænkt på, hvad jeg skulle stille op med lyset i mit køkken! Jeg har haft den smukkeste 12-armede antikke lysekrone, jeg elskede den dengang jeg fandt den på DBA, og jeg elsker den stadig, den passer bare ikke ind mere! Så jeg satte mig for at lave en lysekrone her i påsken! Den skulle være mere rå i looket og billig at lave…

Jeg tog ned og besøgte mine bedsteforældre og ganske rigtigt, som jeg havde tænkt, havde min bedstefar et gammelt jernrør liggende i sit skur! Jeg ville nu gerne have haft et kobberrør, men de er en smule dyre, og jeg havde ingen tålmodighed til at vente på at byggemarkedet åbnede! Spraymaling blev min redning og næste skridt, var nu at lave et hul i hver ende af jernrøret og fastkoble kæderne. Alt jeg nu manglede var en lyskæde!? Jeg fandt den fedeste rå lyskæde i en svensk butik for kun SEK450, se GRANIT shop.

Jeg er virkelig begejstret over resultatet, hva´synes du?? 🙂

HAPPY EASTER EVERYBODY!

DONT FORGET THE COOL GIVE AWAY ENDS ON MONDAY THE 21TH!

CHANDELIERS do no longer belong to the ceiling???

I have a huge passion for collecting ideas and inspiration in any kinds of settings around the world! Just
been to a cozy restaurant and bar called Portas do Sol in the heart 
of Alfama in Lisbon. They really nailed some interior details, that I defintely want to do at home!

First of all they have a mixed style being industrial, modern and bohemian- It gives a cozy atmosphere and its defintely a recommendable place for food and drinks! Though my eyes got caught by a naked wooden wall that made it look unfinish, I was very amazed by this place! I am especially crazy about doing stuff upside down and use things in a way that they arent made for! Portas do Sol did it and I loved it – the chandeliers got down – hanging on a stand and it gave a cool, different and informal look with the light coming from bottom to top compared to top to bottom light sources. As soon as I come my 12 arm chandelier will end its days hanging from the ceiling! Cool or not, what do you think?
