Plan A - Create a tissue paper chandelier thingy to hang above my bed.
Plan A was full of good intention and it gave me something to do that evening, but in the long run it wasn't big enough. The second problem with this project was that I made it upside down, so to actually hang a light from it would have been next to impossible.
This project has gone where projects go to die - my storage closet.
Plan B - create spectacular paint-chip chandelier for above bed.Plan B turned out to be a bit puny for my taste. The size was all wrong. Plus, it has worked perfectly to hang this little ditty above my desk. It gives off the perfect amount of light for working on the computer.
I've gotta say, looking at this photo makes me miss daylight. Someone please explain Daylight Savings to me, because I just don't think I get it. We moved time, which gave me a brighter morning and a shorter evening. Soon my brighter morning will be gone and I'll still have my shorter evening. So...why did we move time? In the winter, I go to work when it's dark and get home when it's dark.
I miss the sun. I miss sunny photos. I miss natural light for taking my pictures because I hate using a flash. My mission this winter is to learn how to take amazing photos in fluorescent lighting. If you have any tips, please share!
Wow...I really went down the rabbit trail on that one. Back to business...
The size is much better and the light is rich and warm. I have this light on a dimmer switch (I'm in love with dimmer switches). It helps to give me some mood lighting when Charlie and I are cuddling. Kidding. I just like being able to dim the lights. As much as the size and lighting are perfect for me, I am bored with Plan C and I am brainstorming ways to spice things up.
I have some plans for building this out and making it more of a substantial "piece", but I'm have a difficulty putting it all together. My brain and I like to visualize and problem solve before completing the project. This project just isn't working in my brain, so I'll hold my tongue until I know for sure that I'll be doing it.
