Book Page Chandelier Lamp Shade

Here is the next chapter of the brass and glass dining room light. The Welding Man luvs it 
and  I keep decorating it and disguising it's wonderfulness.


Yes. The glass panels need cleaned.
I've used these two ideas for Christmas and Autumn.



Then I made this drum shade from a much larger lamp shade. 
It was okay but looked a bit too amber. 
And when lighted the uneven trims really stood out. 
Aargh.


 Several years back I made this book page chandelier for my craft room. 
It totally goes with the book page vibe I've used
in there for many of my storage containers.

Hmmmm.


I punched out about 400 circles from an old dictionary. 
It had water damage and was 25 cents at the thrift store. Score!




I sewed many many strings of 7 circles and hot glued them to 
a metal ring which fit the top of the hanging lamp. 

 


Oooh aaaah, I like it!



I like it alot!

This project is definitely a keeper. It cost me nothing but time and energy. I may add a few more circle strings, perhaps in a different size, and see how it looks.

But for now, I'm calling this a win win!
