DIY - lighting with wood and diamond touch

Dear reader, 

We have a new light in our bedroom. We made this light together. I found wood balls from shop that has a lot of old treasures. From there we also bought an old potato masher that my husband transformed to be a cover of the lamp holder. I love the feeling of wood and simplicity with beautiful shape of light. We have there also a diamond - a halogen bulb made by Eric Themer. I bought the bulb last winter...but it always takes some time to make things ready - or what do you think?

wood balls had a little bit too small holes so we drilled them a little bit bigger

It looks great - both the wooden balls around the cord and the diamond lightbulb. Who'd have thought that it contains a potato masher as well?

Kreetta said...

Haha, Lena yes who would? But I already told it ;)
