The West Elm Inspired Terrariums
I’m not talking about just spray painting the chandelier and using it as a chandelier but the ideas that totally transform the fixture to the point it isn’t recognizable.
And since you always see these types of lights at thrift stores and re-use centers I thought I would share some of these great outside of the box ideas in one place.
First, my original inspiration piece: this gorgeous Glass Mirror from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs:
(Of course if you don’t have a chandelier.. you can also buy a similar version here)
Or what about this fantastic Style Mutt Home Lamp (which actually doesn’t require you to take apart the glass panels!)
The Curtain Queen Creates turned the beveled glass panels of her flush mount fixture into these lovely etched Christmas Ornaments:
A birdhouse is also a great idea, from Christy’s Thrifty Decorating:
The perfect West Elm knockoffs!
If you still need a chandelier, but want to get rid of the 70s and 80s vibe, here are some great transformations:From Rose Hips and Red Ink. She transformed it using PAPER:
And here it gets a traditional lantern look on 320 Sycamore:
A Pottery Barn Inspired version from Remodelaholic (yes, seriously, this was an 80s brass and beveled glass ‘before’):
Here Beckie replaced the glass with paint sticks:
Can you believe this is made out of rope and HULA HOOPS!!? House Dressing Style created quite the makeover:
Or the more streamlined Restoration hardware version from The HoneyComb Home:
Or completely transform the look from dated to timeless via Decor to Adore:
