Yesterday, while I wallowed and listened to a heavy rotation of rainy day music, Abby was much more productive with her post of rainy day projects for the bedroom. So, I'm going to follow Abby's lead and offer this interesting (and seemingly simple DIY!) lighting arrangement: a triptych of hanging lamps for the dining room.
If you love the look of this, it's pretty simple to do: You can either buy a complete lamp shade kit and build it from scratch, like one of these from The Lamp Shop, or hit up Ikea for three ceiling pendant lamps (like the Basisk model) and switch out the shades. (Laure's also found another great resource for affordable lampshades here.)
Once you get your fabric sorted, Colleen over at AT:DC has an easy tutorial on how to cover lampshades.
