At first I painted the lampshade with my favorite grey paint.
Then I coat the inside of the lampshade with gold leaf. I left it a little bit messy and shabby looking.
After installing the bulb holder I wrapped the cable with sisal rope and glued it.
After that I had a little help with hanging it in my bedroom 😉
That how it looked without the bubbles.
And here are they stepping in the game 😉
And tadah, here’s the bubble chandelier in my room, in my reading nook;)

Want an offbeat, one-of-a-kind, lil-bit-nutty, different-lengths-of-arms, bulb-sticking-out-its-butt light? The choice is up to you. See more of the easy and affordable IKEA Sputnik Chandelier.
