I asked Yanet if I could feature this months ago, and then got so behind I didn’t, but your wait is over- not that you knew what you were missing… Now you will know, do you want a cool Anrthopologie inspired lighting fixture for less? Check out how Yanet from 3 Sunkissed Boys made hers:
For a while now I have been waiting for Anthropologie to mark down this wonderful lamp. I love the lamp but I really didn’t want to spend $148 on it. Have I mentioned that I am cheap thrifty?
It’s still not on sale so I was super excited when I saw that Ashley Ann, of Ashley Ann Photography, had taken on a project to recreate this unique pendant light. This is her version of it.
She did a great tutorial on it. (Side Note: I love everything Ashley Ann does. I think she’s amazing. I completely blame her for starting my own blog.) Check her out her blog for the tutorial, her beautiful photographs, her adorable babies, DIY and more.
My neighbor, Alanna, found a great egg basket for me at our antiquing excursion this past weekend. It was perfect for the Anthropologie knock-off re-creation! Here are some pictures of my final version and along the way.
These were white and I spray painted them with Rustoleum Oil Rubbed Bronze.
And the final product.
I love how much brighter the hallway now looks. I haven’t forgotten about the freebie find I mentioned earlier this week. It just needs to be “tweaked” before the reveal and I haven’t had time to do that just yet.
