Mia's Chandy

I finally finished Mia's chandy!

I picked it up at the Habitat for Humanity for $15 and it originally looked like this:

After a coat of spray paint, it looked like this:

The next step was to remove the boring light that was hanging in her room:

(I had dressed it up with a butterfly mobile as seen in this post)

Then came the fun part - not!
After installing the new light and blowing out the fuse box twice I had to call my dad and beg him to come install it for me because the house was going to burn down take it down and install it again properly.

I wanted to add a little "bling", so I picked up a pack of jeweled garland from the party store. It comes in a package like this:

Then I just wrapped it around the light and it looks so pretty! I still may add some more of the jewels, not sure yet:

All I have left to do is make a cord cover for it, add art to her big empty wall and she wants a canopy over her bed....... we'll see. It may look too "busy", but how I would have loved a canopy when I was little!!! So i'll probably give in.
