My dining room has been very dark since we moved in. It has never had a light in it. We have a neat floor lamp friends gave us many years ago so we can see when it gets super dark, but it’s always been an odd room for lighting. I have been ready to “fix” it for a while. This week I committed to doing it for real and building the DIY chandelier I have always wanted.

I had an idea of what I wanted my DIY chandelier to look like and had been mulling it over for a while. One day I was “wandering” around on Amazon and found a very odd chandelier I thought might work for the rustic chandelier I wanted….
I was inspired and ordered some other parts. My inspiration was this ladder I have had in my stash for a while.
I added some “eyes” about 1.5 inches from each end.
I hooked up the chandelier and used the chain and what are supposed to be “ceiling” mounts to attach the individual light strings to the ladder.
Luckily I had purchased some other fun additions “just in case”… so I added those too.
I wanted that “glam” look without losing the rustic charm I was shooting for. In the end after wrapping and draping, I ended up with this:
I am so happy with this and can not wait to show it off in person! I have walked past it 4 times this morning already and it makes me absolutely giddy every time.
Do you think you could cobble together a fun rustic DIY chandelier (or other) look from Amazon parts too? I hope if you try, you’ll share your pictures with me!
