The Moooi Random Pendant Knock Off

The Moooi Random Pendant Knock Off by Amanda
 

Hello Remodelaholic readers! My name is Amanda and I write the blog Our Humble A{Bowe}d where we’re sharing how we have, and still are, transforming our 1960’s rancher into our home. We’ve tackled nearly every room in our 2500 square foot home, and now we’re putting on the finishing touches. Most recently, we’ve been working on our basement, installing cabinet doors in my office and our theater room.

Over the past few months, we’ve been making some changes to our boys’ bedroom. So far, we have painted the bed sun yellow, painted a chevron pattern on a jute rug, created free magazine art, refinished and decorated a bookshelf, and made more DIY origami art. Heck, we even reorganized the closet! The bedroom redesign we started last summer is nearly complete. The finishing touch is a wood veneer version of the Moooi Random pendant I made using iron on veneer edging.

Before:

After:

To start, I looped a piece of veneer to the circumference of fixture I wanted. After cutting about 20 strips, I used a hot glue gun to join the ends, creating circles.

Next, overlap the circles and glue at touch points.

Continue gluing the strips in a random pattern. You can bend the circles to fit inside the cage, too.

Once you’ve filled created a design you like, find an opening to fit a socket kit into. Then, install in the room and admire your new, thrifty, but oh so modern light.

Because of the design, the shade casts really fun shadows, too.
