So it turns out I do have readers… or I guess a reader (thanks Caty). House stuff is slow goings. It feels like when you try to run in a dream; no matter how hard you try you just sort of drag your lead feet through ankle deep jello. That is how I feel about our house project. In the mean time while I make little to no actual progress I decided to make a Mid Century Brass Chandelier.  I wanted to share this DIY for two reasons:

1) I am super proud and it is legit badass.
2) It was wayyyyyy easier then expected, and I hope it inspires anyone who has been fearful to work with electrical to give it a go. (Spoilers, you can do it)

I was super into the Odyssey 4 Chandelier made by Schoolhouse Electric. It is brass, modern, and super dreamy. Alas, the $349 price tag doesn’t quite fit into my cheap I-just-had-a-wedding-and-purchased-a-house budget. I did some quick searching and couldn’t find anywhere local that had the parts, so I bought them online from Grand Brass. Here is the individual pieces list:


For a play by play on how to connect everything, this is a great tutorial from Little Green Notebook.
