Staircase paper pendants


Seeing Isabelle on TV talking about how we should bring more light in our home especially during this dark period I finally found myself inspired to start a project I´ve thinking of for a long time.

Even though we are far from finished I wanted to let you in on the progress.

We have a tall staircase that I want to fill with lights. I´ve been buying these paper pendant shades on sale here and there. (Some are from Åhlens and some from Rusta). And this weekend, late at night Viola and I started hanging them on pink string. We moved them around until we like the “form”.

Now I am going to order 20 bulb sockets and a lot of lamp cords.
Also I have to decide  (a) Color of the cord ? (b) should I keep the shades white or decorate them?

 

PS. More lamps on DosFamily: Isabelle´s latest DIY lamp. Her Baby doll lamp (my personal favorite) The Hello Kitty Lamp and of course the Lace Lamp with 500 comments.

    It looks very nice, but for even more depth I say decorate them. Maybe every lamp another colour so it looks like huge confetti :)

    Thanks for sharing!

    It’s a great idea and I think it is going to look great when the light is on:)

    I’d go for a colour cord and I’d leave the lamps white as they look very light now and colourful ones could make the staircase crumpy.

    Cheers!

    Yay, snyggt! Jag röstar på att behålla lamporna vita, ljuset från dem är så himla fint. Ser fram emot resultatet! // Erika
