I love adding dramatic things that change the whole vibe of the room-- and nothing is more dramatic than a chandelier. A couple months back we moved from a teeny tiny apartment around the corner to the one we're in now. Here's my new bedroom in the apartment. I've been looking for a chandelier for a while, so when Lamps.com reached out to see if I wanted to check out any of their items, I jumped at the chance. Chandelier #1, Chandelier #2, Chandelier #3 Normally you're supposed to mount these lights in actual light fixtures, but my dad showed me how to convert these types of lights into lights that you can plug into the wall. -Chandelier -Plug (I got mine in the hardware store, but you can get them on Amazon.) To start, all of the ceiling-mounted lights come with a cord that you can convert into a plug. Next, take the fabric you want to cover the cord and tear it into strips.

Easy Drink - Bottle Redesign by Hsu Hsiang-Min, Liu Nai-Wen & Chen Yu-Hsin The 45-Degree Neck What will happen if we shift the mouth of the bottle from the top to a 45-degree angle?
