And?? What do you think of all those lights? Aren’t they all fabulous? Do you have a favorite?

I love them all, they have me inspired to try and DIY lighting throughout my house.

I think I will start with my entryway, since I recently updated it but didn’t change the lighting. I’ll make sure to share it with you as soon as it’s done.

If you were to redo the lighting in your home, which room would you start with?

Have a BEAUTIFUL day!

How hard to choose a favourite! I like the orb one the best - the west elm knock off. I actually like it better then the original.

Hi Christine!

I love love love all the awesome DIY lights. So puuuurty! Thanks for sharing them. I'm going to give the tissue paper party lights a whirl. I think I'll do them all in white for our treehouse. We have a ton of treehouse guests in the summer and they love little touches like that. Maybe I will leave some tissue paper out and inspire them to make some too. :)

You rock out loud.

Thanks again! Lynne xx

I know that metal/wire baskets and the like are so very popular and considered industrial, but my roommate would throw a fit if I were to put these up in rooms in my house. Her already low vision would be rendered even lower if the bulbs were too bright and in her face. As much as I like some of the industrial looks, that isn't one I particular care for myself. However, that circles out of book pages light, while looking on the dim side, is very appealing, I'm just too much of a book junkie to want to cut up most books. I totally love the globe lights, but the globe in question would already be on its last... legs?... before I'd make one, I just like globes too. However, I could really get behind that tripod lamp. Floor lamps also appeal to me a lot. I love my kitchen lights, but I have to say that my main light has turned into a nightmare dust collector, if I were to replace another light soon, it'd be that one, but I also don't want to give up my beaded fringed light either!
