I have a light fixture hanging above my bed that has been there since the 1950s. It was ugly then, and it is even more hideous now.
Imagine my delight to find out that the talented bloggess at Freshly Picked turned the exact same trashy fixture into a capiz chandelier.
Unlike the $250 version sold at West Elm, this capiz chandelier is made of wax paper, and an admittedly large time commitment.
Check out this easy-to-understand tutorial. Good luck!
