Well, Wednesday came and went, and I didn't get to post my DIY Wednesday.
Why, you say?
Well, I didn't quite finish it. I could settle and say it is finished, but I'm not quite happy with it just yet.
I decided to take on the DIY Mardis Gras Bead Chandelier Project that I saw on Dollar Store Crafts seen here:
I had a few issues with the project, the first being that the Dollar Store where I live did not have any mardis gras beads...boo. So, I had to go to Hobby Lobby. Because I am a very impatient person, and I really wanted to do this project, I ate the extra $1 on the beads. I still got 5-6 strands per package, so it wasn't so bad.
My other issue was with the spray painting. I kept having to coat, and re-coat because I kept missing spots. Grrrr.
Anyhoo, I'm still not done with it, but I'll post a so-far picture:
Sorry for the lame-o DIY post. I promise to be better next time!
I will leave you with some pictures of my babies, Mango and Dax.
I was playing around on picnik with the different edits:
That's all for now!
