DIY Tassel Macrame Chandelier

I recently had my first child and of course I prepared a nursery for him. You can check out my blog post about that here. Whenever I’m decorating (or often redecorating) a room I usually scan Pinterest for ideas. A lot of my nursery decor was inspired by regular bedroom set ups. I wanted my nursery to flow with the rest of my house and not necessarily look like a baby’s room. When it came to picking a pendant light, because there wasn’t one in this room previously, I was inspired by one I saw on the Anthropologie website, here. The price tag for this thing was hefty and while I was willing to splurge on certain items, a light was not one of them. So I decided to try my hand at making one and it worked out!

Below are the steps I took to achieve this, but if you’d like a more in depth view of the process, please check out my youtube tutorial below.

Minimal & Boho Nursery

At 39 weeks pregnant, and what some would say is the very last minute, I finally finished my nursery. Of course, I could totally spend more time and money perfecting and adding things, but I know I should be content with what I have so far, especially since I am a first time Mom and simply have no idea what’s to come. I’m sure once our sweet boy is here we will be changing things up, but for now we are really happy and content with this simple space for our little one.
