Yes, I've succumbed. I've admired Lindsey Adelman's work for a long time, but you know, we can't all afford 10k chandeliers, and Steven & I happen to need overhead lighting in our dining room (there was a fiasco at a recent holiday dinner where the lighting was deemed too dim by guests [candelight, very atmospheric], and it was insisted that we turn on the light in the horrid ceiling fan). Remodelista to the rescue, by way of the Brick House:
Ms. Adelman has generously listed detailed instructions and material sources for this beautiful light fixture, the You Make It. But the real question is, can I possibly complete this for our dinner party this Saturday? This is what came in the mail on Monday, in a million pieces:
The wiring came yesterday, and I'm skeptical ... it look pretty dainty, very thin, but maybe that's what's inside light fixtures. I've figured from the diagrams how it all fits together (I think), without any of the arrangement that will make it a more dynamic object.
Results and explanations of struggles forthcoming.
