My Very Own Lindsay Adelman Chandelier

What did we do last night?  Oh, nothing... we just hung out and MADE OUR OWN LAMP!  No big deal, right? 

I found the idea online months ago and Corey looked at it and confirmed that he could wire it for me, so we ordered the supplies... Which have been sitting in a box for over a month while we worked on other areas of the house.

This is one of those projects that I have been dying to show you, but I wanted to wait until we were completely finished.  A special shout out to Corey for this one, who modified the original specs so it would be safer and who performed surgery on the lamp connected all the wires inside the tiny brass tubes at 11 o'clock at night because we were both so excited to see the finished product.

This project actually evolved from a trip to CB2 earlier this summer, where I was searching for this satellite pendant to (you guessed it) spray paint gold.

When I learned that this lamp was out of stock at CB2, I remembered that Corey and I prefer to buy vintage items or make them ourselves.  I learned about Lindsay Adelman chandeliers on Modernhaus.  They are fairly simple to make, but a bit of a challenge to wire correctly using proper gauge wire.  You can find the instructions here.

Here are some pictures of the lamp before Corey wired it.  The holes in the ceiling were from Corey updating the electrical work and have since been patched.:

Note: For safety reasons, (Corey felt more comfortable with thicker wiring, which would meet proper electrical codes.) we Corey modified the lamp slightly.  With proper wire, he was limited in the number of bulbs he could power through each individual branch.  We are thrilled with the finished product... especially against our new dark walls, so here it is:

And with the lights on:

In case you're curious, the industrial pendant we had hung in the living room will find a good home in our bedroom.  We still like it, but not as much as the Lindsay Adelman light!  We really love it!  What do you think?  Would you consider making your own?
