Hope you all had a nice weekend. We had some pretty hot weather, but at least it was sunny.
During an outside cleaning project, that my husband and I were doing, I stumbled across some rope that my older son had and said he wasn't using. He gave it to me. My head started spinning with ideas on how I could use this rope.
Then, the light bulb went off and I knew just what I was going to do with it.
Here was my inspiration...........
See that huge rope used to hang that light fixture? Wait, there's more!
Look at these.
So, you see where I'm going with this, right?
I took this rope (much longer than this piece)......
And turned it into this...........
All I did was wrap the rope tightly together around the existing chain. And voila! I secured it at the bottom and top with tie wraps.
I love the texture and thickness it adds to the chain. It also mimics the texture of burlap and sea grass which I really like.
It doesn't show up too well in this photo, but this gives you a sense of the overall feeling in the room now.
Even though this light fixture had to be re-positioned over the table, I still like it. I just wrapped the rope around the straight part of the hanging chain. I tried wrapping it around the draped part too, but it didn't look good.
If I ever want to remove it, it will be simple. This is not permanent.
So, are you a fan of rope on light fixtures? If you like rustic, I think it's pretty neat!
