Throughout the journey of updating our home I’ve come to realize how important lighting is. I think lighting can often be forgotten when updating a space. I’ve seen it over and over again, someone updates a plain jane room into a beautiful space but leaves the basic builder grade light fixtures. By just taking it one step further the room could be completely transformed and it doesn’t always have to cost a lot of money. At least in my opinion.
Today, I’m going to show you some DIY Pendant Lights that won’t break the bank and will give your space an entirely new look.
