DIY: Beaded Chandelier

DIY + How To

We drooled so heavily over an image of a bright, turquoise beaded chandelier that was all over Pinterest a couple of weeks ago. It was like the perfect bridge between modern rooms and vintage style. Bold and beautiful, it would be just the thing to add over a harsh modern dining room table to lighten it up, or add to a bathroom for a bold stroke of personality. What a delight to come across a DIY project, which means you can make this affordably and personalized for your needs!

We spotted this project on Gus and Lula. We love that this doesn’t appear to take up a lot of time or is too difficult to do; we think this could be done in an afternoon. And you don’t have to go with blue—wouldn’t this look stunning in all white? Or sassy any glossy black? Or some other fun, modern color?

What do you think of this beaded chandelier project? A cool mix of modern and vintage? Or too busy for your own personal style? Let us know?!

    Thanks for sharing our project! Unfortunately, it looks like our old tutorial is down, but we have a more updated version you can find here: http://www.gusandlula.com/2012/06/chandelier.html

    We redid the chandelier with natural wood beads instead of the blue, and a different light bulb setup

      Thanks so much for the updated info. I’ve updated the links. The natural wood beads, btw, are stellar ;)
