I chose a winner. And I decided to not spill the beans on who it is until after I get the prize. But I sufficiently stalked her blog and know exactly what I'm looking for.
Also, I wanted a light like this for my boys room.
It's from Pottery Barn. Which is code for cute but expensive.
So my mom found a star candle holder at a yard sale that looks just like it but isn't wired and gave it to me. Then I found one of these mini pendant light kits at Home Depot for about 15 bucks. I think they're cheaper at Ikea but it's 45 minutes away from my house.
Luckily there was a hole in the top of it that was small enough that the pendant wouldn't fit through it so the star's just kinda resting on it. I used a giant clear bulb that my handy man happened to have in his truck. And by my handy man, I mean my husbands best friend who vowed to care for us while he was deployed. Poor sucker. He didn't know I was going to do project after project to keep my mind off things! Anyways, here is the finished product. I'll post the rest of the room this weekend. I bought the coolest antique twin bed off craigslist I need to get bedding for before I reveal it.
