DIY Orb Chandelier Lighting Update!

A few weeks ago I posted about my idea for making a budget-friendly version of some beautiful feature lights I’d seen in a local shop… With a little vision and some help from my very clever, DIY-king of a Dad, we achieved THIS:

LightsBeforeLightsAfterHigh ceilings afford me the opportunity to really go big with lighting in this house and I’m super thrilled with how these turned out! They’re modern, but still in-keeping with the style of the house and BOTH lights came in at just under R400 for the pair – compared to nearly R10 000 for two where I’d originally seen the idea (original ones obviously are different in structure and materials but the idea is still the same)
