Shabby Chic Nursery Chandelier


Today I'm sharing a very special post with you! Why so special? Because I'm going to be an Aunt!! I hadn't officially posted about it yet, but better late than never! My sister is due in late May, and revealed to the family on Christmas day that she was having a little girl. Hollynd Ainara Hardman, so precious! Preparing for Hollynd's debut, my sister requested that I make her a lace chandelier to go above her rocking chair. Now, when Hollynd is wailing at 2:00am for a late night snack or diaper change my sister will have a beautiful lace chandelier to admire.

For this project you will need:
- three looms of different sizes - large to small
- lace
- ribbon
- pearls
- rosettes
- hot glue
- fishing wire

This is definitely a two person project! You will need a crafting buddy to help you by holding the looms thought the project and when hanging it. My lovely mother, aka Grandma NeNe, helped me from start to finish :)


You'll want to start by deciding which lace will go on each of the three loom layers. If you have multiple layers per loom that you can glue together, it is helpful to glue them together first. I also suggest gluing the lace onto the loom first before cutting it, curves and lace can be tricky at times. 


I started by gluing a single layer to the inside curve of my loom.


Next, add your other lace layers to the outside of the loom. This will hide the wood, unless you want it to be seen. You can add as many layers to each loom as you'd like. Just do what you think looks best, you can't go wrong! Continue this with the other two looms. You can add pearls and ribbon for different textures.


Once your looms are complete you will want to hang the first one from the light fixture or ceiling. For this project, my sister wanted it to cover a light, so we attached it to the cord using a safety pin which went through the ribbons and between the cord twists. If you are covering a light, make sure that it is a low watt bulb and that it does not produce a ton of heat.


For the first level of the chandelier you will use three ribbons to hang it. The second and third layers will each be hung using three pieces of fishing wire (six pieces total). Attach the second layer to the first using the wire, and then the third to the second. I just tied it through the lace and made a few knots, completely unnoticeable. 


It may take you a few times to get the wire levels just right. Add any embellishments and you're done! Aren't little girls rooms so much fun to decorate!?!

  28. I was a HIV-AIDS patient and I got it from cheating on my wife. It was sort of a payback but a week later I was told by a friend that the person who I cheated with had the HIV-AIDS virus and did not tell me. I was so stupid by not using a condom I thought since he was an old school friend he was trustworthy. But I was wrong. I cried and cried. Two days later, I got a phone call from my friend and he told me about a person who is known by another friend, who can help me. I could not let my wife know what I was going through. I finally got his email address: oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com and I emailed this man my story and he replied me immediately saying i should be calm and told me that everything will be OK. I could not come to terms with what I was hearing but then I concluded it did not matter because I was so broken I just needed help. I was going out of my mind literally. I was confused with what he was telling me, but I listened. He told me about some materials i need to buy that he needed to cast the spell and I said OK. I bought the materials to him, I sent down my picture to him and my positive result sheet and he replied me that i am going to be negative under 3days. I message Him every 2hours for 2day and I knew he thought that I was crazy but I did care I needed a shoulder. Behold, the third day he messaged me i should go for a test that i will be negative. My marriage could be broken because of a stupid mistake and my life was on the line. I remembered when I was going to get the results of my re-test I called him up again and told him that I was going to get my results today and his reply was “so" and that everything will be as he explained. I knew then that he was getting tired of me calling him, maybe I was wrong. Well I got my results and the first person I called was him - again. As he said hello I started to cry and cry. I could not believe it. I was given a second chance in life.This man is a great spiritual HIV/AIDS healer, his healing spell on aids healing is very powerful .please brothers and sister, contact Dr Ose oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com
