Day 7 – bin chandelier for the bedroom
In yesterday’s post I said take note of the upcycled bin light… cause here it is again! Only a bit fancier now.
This was our light since we moved in. I’ve been dreaming of a better light for our bedroom for a few years now. I couldn’t make up my mind what I wanted, but I definitely wanted something with crystals and sparkle. I’d look at it every weekend, while laying in bed with a cup of coffee, and cringe.
These were the light fittings we had in all the bedrooms. I’m slowly replacing them with more interesting ones.
So how’s this for more interesting?
I had some chandelier crystals, I had the bin with a hole in it, just waiting to be reused… I actually found bayonet to E27 screw in globe converters on ebay so I was able to put in an edison bulb.
A quick and easy job that only took me 4 years and 20 minutes.
A friend of mine said she didn’t like it so much cause… “it looks like a rubbish bin”.
Umm… That’s kinda the point. Its an upcycled bin, not a light fitting. Its a bin with aspirations…
What next? No idea.
