cardboard tube DIY chandelier

Project Description add commentupload similar

randomly walked by 48 of these cardboard tubes waiting to be recycled on way to a meeting. On the way home couldnt bring myself to walk by them. So lil ol me , dragged these cumbersome things back to my apt. My apt was in dire need of a chandelier but i was too cheap / broke to spring $300+ for all the ones i liked. And POOF, the idea was born. I got the light sockets from ikea for $5 a pc , bought about $20 worht of apoxy , and went to town. I mapped out the design in photoshop , and got to work . I had a blast, and am thrilled at how it came out, and on the cheap , no less!

It looks stylish! And I love the idea that it could be construed so cheap!
