DIY Farmhouse Beaded Chandelier

Good morning! We have had so much wonderful rain, but I am so ready for sunshine and warm days! How about you? We also found out my niece is going to have a baby boy this summer! This will be the first boy in 27 years for our family! Pretty exciting news!

I am still in the process of trying to use the supplies I already own and decided to try to find another project for the wooden beads I have in my stash. The first project I made was Minnie Mouse ornaments. I have been seeing many beaded lamps on the internet, so I thought I would give it a try for myself. I have had this hanging lamp on my patio for many years. I bought it at a yard sale and removed the wiring so it is lit with candles.¬† Several of the glass globes were broken during the move to our ‘new’ house, so I had to figure out something else to dress it up. I wasn’t sure what I was going to do, but than the wooden beads came to mind.

The lamp is pretty rustic. I cleaned it up, but I decided not to repaint it, but just leave it as is. I did remove the weird little curved parts on the bottom.

I used a variety of different sizes for the beads. I first went through my stash to figure out how many of each size I had and make some kind of pattern with them. I knew I would need six strands of each set. I also used twine to thread them on to. I did end up having to buy a few beads just to finish out some of the strands.

Sorry for the blur on this picture. This is the lower section of the lamp. I measured out how long I wanted the twine to be and then threaded the beads on. I wrapped one end of the twine around the metal, hot gluing it into place. I wrapped the twine three times at this end.

This is the other end where it ends at the candle holder. I also wrapped this three times and secured it with hot glue.

For the top section of the lamp, I was able to tie a knot in one end of the twine and glue tuck it under the open edge. I also secured it at the middle. I now had my six strands on the top and bottom.

For the candle holders, I took the largest bead I had and my husband cut out the middle to fit a small tealight candle.

I tried lighting candles to take pictures, but it was pretty windy outside this day. But you get the idea. ūüôā

It turned out so much better than I thought it would!

I can’t wait to have a nice warm evening to light the candles and see how it will look on my patio.

Have you ever tried a project like this? This was the first time I have used so many wooden beads, and I am so happy I tried it! I hope you all have a great week!

Recently, mom and I were contacted by a company by the name of Lighting Miami.  It is a company that sells many different kinds of lamps and lighting devices.  And some of their stuff if absolutely beautiful!

There are all kinds of lamps that you can buy depending on what you are looking for.

Like this crystal chandelier for $55,608.

Or if that is a tad out of your price range, you could buy this $10 Winnie the Pooh lamp!

But either way, the lamps are absolutely beautiful!  They have everything that you can think of.  There are table lamps, wall lights, chandeliers, ceiling lights, and outdoor lamps.  There are all sorts of price ranges and so many different styles.

My family has lived in the same house for 23 years (gasp, I know…). ¬†The house was built in the 1950s and sometimes we have to change things up to make it look more modern. ¬†So looking through this website has helped us to find ways to fix up the house to make it fit into our ever changing style.

Here is a beautiful modern chandelier that would look great in our dining room over the farm table.  This Elk chandelier is $612.

How about these cool cube floor lamps from SLV?  Haley wants a few of these in her room.

I also really like this outdoor light from Jeremiah Lighting. ¬†It is beautiful, even though it doesn’t really match anything in our outdoor patio…
