DIY: Eklektisk lysekrone for barnerommet (før og etter) / DIY: Eclectic chandelier for the nursery (before and after)

Lamper er noe som er veldig viktig for meg, og jeg inngår ingen kompromisser. For rommet til Indie (datteren vår) ønsket jeg noe som var fargerikt, ikke for pent og ikke for babyaktig. Endte opp med å fornye lysekronen vi tidligere hadde på soverommet vårt. Over kan du se et litt dårlig bilde av hvordan den så ut før. Bildet er av soverommet i den forrige leiligheten vår. Lysekronen var gullfarget med glass / krystaller hengende.
I'm very passionate about light fixtures, and don't compromize. For Indie's room (our 11 month old daughter) I wanted something fun, colorfol, not too girly and not too babyish. I ended up with a DIY project where I revamped our old bedroom chandelier. Above you can see a rather unclear picture of it from the bedroom of our last apartment.

For prosjektet trengte jeg følgende:
  • Ståltråd
  • Avbitertang (denne er fra IKEA)
  • Plastperler og treperler
  • Hvit spraymaling

Prosjektet kostet totalt 350 kr.

Jeg begynte med å spraymale lampen hvit. Etter det har jeg sittet og laget hundrevis av nye "remser" av plastperler med en treperle nederst.

For the project I needed the following:

  • Steel wire
  • Tools (this one from an IKEA kit)
  • Plastic and wood beads
  • White sprat paint

The project had a total cost of about $50.

I removed all the crystal and spray painted it white. After that I made hundereds (!) of strands with plastic beads, and a wood bead at the bottom.

Her er det ferdige resultatet. Minner meg litt om en rastafari! Hihi... Er definitivt en fargebombe i rommet, og merker at jeg blir litt fnisete hver gang jeg ser den.

Above you can see the finished result. It kind of reminds me of a rastafari! (lol) Definitly a humorous chandelier, and I kind of giggle every time I see it.

Så kreativt, og ikke minst modig!
Ikke mange som hadde turt å pille i stykker en prismekrone, men jeg tror dette vil inspirere flere!

Kjempekul rastafarilampe!

Oi, så utrolig flott..
God idè til et barnerom :)

Jeg har sittet og tenkt akkurat på den samme ideen. Har masse perler som jeg kjøpte i Spania og resultatet ditt var jo virkelig inspirerende!

Eplemamma - tusen takk! Så utrolig hyggelig at du sier det! Det er utrolig enkelt og veldig moro :)

Christine - Tusen takk!

MWW - Great minds think alike? ;) Har du bilder av perlene, eller?

Drops - tenkte faktisk på deg når jeg lagde den, det er jo drops!! Hihi...

Wow amazing. I can't believe you made that on your own. Love that you used something you already had and just re-worked it.

Thanks again for your sweet words on my blog. It really cheered me up!!

Så flink du er! :)
Lampen ble jo kjempefin!
Datteren din vil nok ha glede av den lampen i mange år fremover.

Hvor det marokkanske fatet skal plasseres er et godt spørsmål, som jeg også er spent på ;-)

Føler at leiligheten er i et vakum for tiden. Har fått sperre for løsninger - a la skrivesperre. Ganske frustrerende. Tror jeg trengte en liten pause, for da jeg kom hjem fikk jeg endelig følelsen tilbake, - med tanke på hva jeg vil at leiligheten skal uttrykke. Det fort gjort å la seg rive med i blogglandia. Plutselig blir man revet mellom uttallige uttrykk og man mister kanskje litt sin egen visjon?

Uansett, frustrasjonen er nå laget i form av en to do liste. Og selv om løsningene føles like fraværende, skal jeg nå jobbe litt mer målrettet med det enkelte prosjekt.

Hadde håpet å invitere deg på en løsningsorientert lunsj, her i heimen ;-), før du begynner på jobb. Men det er jo allerede på mandag, så jeg skal ikke stresse deg med enda et prosjekt ;-) Håper allikevel at vi vil få muligheten til å treffes. Jeg trenger virkelig hjelp til å komme ut av hengemyra ;-)

Herregod så fantastisk den ble! "Nutelig" som vi sier her borte. Tenker småjenta ble fornøyd med den. Litt av er prosjekt kan jeg tenke meg:)

Camila - Thank you, I find it so much more fun to use what you already have a make something fabulous from it. Really hope you're feeling better, you should!! :)

Puslespill - Tusen takk, det er akkurat det jeg håper på!

MWW - Sånt skjer innimellom, og er utrolig frustrerende. Håper du har fått mange nye og herlige inntrykk i Spania som du kan ta med deg hjem. Vi har fortsatt massevis av tid til et hjemmebesøk, jeg jobber bare 50%! Så bare si ifra, så kommer jeg en tur :)

Frk Maya - TUSEN TAKK!! :) Det var faktisk ikke så uoverkommelig, når jeg kom skikkelig i gang brukte jeg vel ca 2 dager.

Lauren - THANK YOU so much!! Means much coming from you, you know i LOVE your work! Indie really loves it, she's totally fascinated by it.

I found your blog through Hooked on Fridays. Thanks so much for writing in Norwegian AND English!! :-)

The original chandelier was really pretty, but you did a great job of giving it a fresh & fun new look :-) Definitely a one-of-a-kind piece that I'm sure your daughter will love :-)

Kelly @ DesignTies

Julia @ Hooked on Houses said...

How creative! Looks like something you'd spend a fortune for in a high-end artsy shop. Great job.

Cass said...

Well I am surely glad you write in Norwegian AND in English! My grandparents all came from Norway, but I only understand a few words.

What an amazing job you did with that chandelier. It's charming! Very fun, very lovely.

Tak!
Cass

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...
