ikea lighting *


ikea is fantastic for basic pieces that can be redone to fit your style and your home's feel. this time i thought i'd check out their lighting and came across this cute $40 (!) three-armed chandelier that can be hardwired and hung over a bed, table or even in a bathroom for a little glam touch. it's sold as silver, but i think it would be adorable to spray paint it say, robin's egg blue and dip the crystals in a white enamel, or a white paint and white enamel. either way, it has a lot of potential for an affordable mini chandy- especially one that can be hardwired. and just for fun i threw in this cute new lotten lampshade for $5.99- the pattern reminds me of stitching and i think it might be cute used on a base that's a bit more homespun looking. click here for the full collection of new lighting at ikea. enjoy!

40 dollar chandelier! amazing. will you get one? at that price i can do an art experiment maybe. i have a can of plastic tool dip and wouldn't it be crazy to dip half of it into bright yellow or red plastic? (i got the idea from a readymade mag, i think)

i'll go to ikea if you go with me. the idea of going back to new jersey terrifies me. i had a complete mental breakdown last time- but i love this little guy. so much potential for painting- or plastic-ing.

I just bought this chandelier for my bathroom. I haven't installed it yet, but I think it's going to be perfect.
