Follow Up: New Bedroom Light Fixture

Earlier this week we posted a photo of our new bedroom light fixture, and readers had several questions that we thought we'd answer today. Namely, how it looks at night, and how we put it together. Click below the jump to see more photos.

Putting it together was really pretty simple - we started with a basic ceiling cord kit, and then simple strung the globes one by one with fishing line from the loop at the top, taking time to stand back and make sure we liked the general shape of the arrangement.

As for the light source? A CFL bulb inside one of the globes, which we moved to get this shot but which is usually nestled into the middle of the group. The whole thing took us less than an hour to put together (it got harder to string them up the more we had up there, as it was harder to get to that top loop.)

And the all-important night shot. Like we said before, a little red-light-special, but we've actually grown pretty fond of it (note: there's a bedside light out of the frame that's also on in this photo - this cuts the red somewhat.)
