I love it when...

you have an idea and then when you try to actually make it, it actually works! I bought these beautiful candle holders last week. They were $14.99 each (I bought two ). I also bought some aviation tin snips and carefully cut a hole in the bottom of each and tiny snips in the top to feed wires through so that they could be lamps. I bought these lamp cords, fed them through and hung them from the ceiling one on each side of our bed. They are hanging there now and we love them. The cords have switches on them so you just have to reach over and switch them on and off. I love the way they look and ,as I have zero electrical skills, they were nice and easy! I need to hang curtains and do a few other things and then I will put a photo of them in action. I don't even think you would really need to cut the hole in the bottom as there is a lot of decorative holes for the light to come through. And I love the color!
