This Litttle Light of Mine

I made a light out of treasures around my house...a bird cage, old mounted wall lamp, crystals from a trashed light, vintage clothes hanger, and distressed song sheets.


I love the contrast of the crystals on the rust, do you?


I'm fixing up "my spot"...so thought I'd share it,
a few pics at a time, since I have sooo Many!...

I hung my light above the bed...It puts out a great light for reading...and there is my baby gate...with a collection of wild flower post cards and old photographs.
  
I brought some items in from "My Tree House". I will post, "My Newly Decorated Tree House", soon.



I made a chain from old song sheets, to hide the cord...




I hung it from a vintage clothes rack hanger...Which is pretty cool, because it will swing to either side, if you need to get it out of the way. Yikes, I need to put a little paint on those shiny screws!





I wanted this little nook to be usable for a guest...it is connected to a "Jack and Jill" bathroom, and of course, walks out to the balcony, "Tree House". 

The other side of the room holds all my crafts. This chair, by the window is a favorite spot...


I am planning to weave a roll or two of the song sheets along the bottom of the cage, and might get a better light bulb, to help diffuse the light...
I've already had my son's girl friend, as a guest... before the paint smell had gone away.

I've got paint, trim, flooring products to share...

I am bragging a little here...

 I am tickled pink about my room...

Awww. i can't believe you undid the precious tree house...I was so in love with it...Ah Well!!
I know you will come up with another idea for it just as cute...maybe??? LoL
But where will you create with the bed in there?
I am thinking we are living in twin houses, our main bathroom connects with a hall into my creating place and a door that goes out on the balcony...I am having so much fun using the back of my little house at long last.
blessings....

How very very clever and absolutely adorable. I do bird rescue, so anything with a bird cage is precious to me.

I keep trying to post a comment and there is something wrong. I'll try again.
Yes, the rust and crystal look so good together and this whole thing is so darn cute! Music is such a clever way to hide the cord!

I absolutely love that room ~ so welcoming! Fantastic light creation. I collect vintage bird cages, so this project struck a particularly fond chord. Hopping by, by way of my friend Holly at 504 Main. She mentioned your blog, in particular, as a must-visit! Jenn

Holly said...

I am giddy...at every thing you do! How clever. I see my friend Jenn stopped by...you would love her style too!
