Some of my most creative ideas come from when I am on a run, in the shower or in the car. But my idea of the “Fandelier” wasn’t generated in any of those places.
My “Fan-delier” project was sparked by an idea I got from a girlfriend. She and her husband were making a few new decorating additions to their new home. The beautiful, decorative ceiling fan was something I fell in love with and I knew I had to recreate it.
- 1. A ceiling fan with removable light fixture globe. I bought a basic ceiling fan from our local Menards
- 2. A light pendant. I bought this Coffee 8″ Capiz Hanging Pendant Lantern from World Market. Only $19.99
My husband installed the ceiling fan first and removed the glass globe. In place of the globe he screwed the pendant above the light bulbs. We painted a circle around the fan to give it a little more character.
Some of you are probably thinking- “Yes, this looks cool but I bet the chandelier is really loud when the fan is turned on.” It is actually really quiet!” The small, plastic pendants sway a little in the breeze of the fan and make some noise. It is definitely not loud enough to keep you up at night. The noise reminds me of soft wind chimes moving through the breeze of a warm summer night.
