No, this is not some S&M related post (although the title may lead you to believe otherwise). Instead, I wanted to share a simple and affordable route we took to update a light fixture. It all started as I fed our darling girl, letting my mind wander and mull over the living/dining rooms’ decor. I wasn’t pleased with the room’s overall feel, but couldn’t my finger on what was bothering me until finally my eye settled on the deviant: the metal chain that suspended the pendant light over the dining room table.
I realize that this may sound insignificant to most folks, but it was a bain on the aesthetic feel. But what I could do other than change out the light fixture? Inspiration struck and I was off to the home improvement store.
My purchase was a 50 ft section of rope, roughly a 1/2 ince in diameter. My plan was to wrap it around the chain, effectively hiding it from view while simultaneously lending the light fixture more interest. With Aaron’s help, it took me 10 minutes to complete and only $8 in expense. Whoo-hoo for little investment with a big return!
