I decided to redo my home, not knowing what room to start in first, I thought to myself, well, we live in the country so why not go with rustic decor?
So that’s what Iv’e decided to do, modern rustic country decor, this is just one of the ideas I have, not knowing if in the bathroom or kitchen yet, who
know’s maybe both. I Love this rustic look!! I wanted to create one of these chandeliers after seeing so many inspiring chandelier mason jar lights on Pinterest! So
I talked my husband into making this for me, we’ll see how it turns out 😉
Please be sure to contact an electrician if you aren’t familiar with this sort of thing.
Also be sure to disconnect the power completely to the room you are installing or working on your light in!
