POTTERY BARN inspired Mason Jar Chandelier

Every time I browse the Pottery Barn website, I can't help but think of this funny F.R.I.E.N.D.S scene.  

I like to say my style is rustic chic which in translation means I am a confused girl who is torn between her country and city lifestyles hence my love of Pottery Barn.

While browsing pottery barn a few months back I came across this gem of a chandelier.

 Awe the mason jar chandelier.... PERFECTION.

For only $399 it can be yours! 

Pottery Barn Mason Jar Chandelier

OR

You can make one for $50 and learn something new!

This was a fun project for me to do because I got to use big girl tools like a saw and drill and nail gun (ok fine my grandpa "helped" me) and I also got to learn the very basics of electrical work and learned how to wire all the wires together!  I couldn't be more pleased with how my chandelier turned out.  It hangs a little low above my desk right now, but one day I hope to move into a house and put it in my entry way or even over a kitchen table!
