Toilet Paper in the Dining Room

We have a really boring chandelier in our dining room. I mean, it's a chandelier that most people would probably be happy with (being renters, we have to comply with our landlords' things). It's very Pottery-Barn-esque...silver, with 6 small lights around it. For some reason, it just really bothered me and I felt like it didn't go with my style at all, so I built a new "light installation" (as I am fancily calling it) this weekend...






I made it with some wire from Home Depot, poster board, and tissue :)

  8. I like to imagine Jordan's face when he walks in the door everyday and there is some crazy new decoration. Kind of like that time I came home from work and you had painted the living room and kitchen in my favorite colors and redecorated the whole downstairs.

  10. Yes, Jordan has lots of lovely little comments about my creations, but my favorite is when he tries to incorporate his little things into something I've done...like last week, he brought a couple of trophies and a medal into the room and placed them amongst some things that I had arranged on this buffet thing in the dining room...took me a few days to notice, but it was really funny...

  13. That is awesome! I never would think to use wholesale toilet paper as a lamp shade. Is there any risk of a fire with this? That would be my main concern.
