One of my latest projects for HGTV was to create a chandelier to be hung outdoors. When I was offered the assignment, it made me a little nervous because I rarely “build” things. I knew it would be a bit of a challenge since it was outside my norm of styling parties and dessert tables, but I also thought it would be quite fun to venture around the hardware store and come up with some ideas. I *almost* called in help from my fabulous friend, Shelley from The House of Smiths (who seems to be holding a tool at least once a week on her blog), but I decided to go for it on my own. After a few attempted chandelier ideas and many trips to Home Depot, I came up with something super simple, yet super cute!
