DIY art update: bottle chandelier
Before we even moved our furniture into this condo, we installed our hanging bottle sculpture (seen here). Inspired by an art installation at the Jackson, Mississippi, Anthropologie store, our hanging bottles have been a focal point for our space. We always wanted to add lighting to the bottles (like the Anthropologie piece), but we never got around to it. There’s nothing like a house tour to inspire completion of projects, and Daniel tackled the lighting one afternoon while I was helping decorate the Walthall patio.
He says the process was fairly simple: he attached a florescent bulb to a wire and attached the wire to the beam and the wall, then painted the wire to match the wall color. The wire is less intrusive than I’d thought, and the lighting effect is wonderful.
