Have you been eying Serena & Lily’s Malibu Chandelier for your home? It is such a natural, simple colored piece. It is the different textures that really give it a great shabby chic, beachy type feel. At almost $900 it is a pretty serious lighting investment. But you can make it at home for 1/5 of that price, with premium materials, in whatever size and configuration you need. Here’s the full tutorial:

This felt rosette is just darling with all it differently sized petals…I love it. I used this and other felt flowers on wreaths all the time, although there are a million and one ways to use them. Think of it as flower bedazzling

A while back a dear friend of mine let me come up with some design ideas for her daughter, Madelyn’s room. Take a look at the original digital design post for the before pictures. She didn’t go for the striped wall I planned, but we got to try out just about everything else! Here’s the reveal She loves her big girl room, and at 8, I’m sure she’ll love it for years to come as she grows too!
Ok, now that we have all the custom beaded chandelier parts and pieces together we’re ready to build! For a full list of materials check out Part I of the Beaded Chandelier tutorial. The project from this point can easily take a day or two. I’m lucky enough to have a fiance who doesn’t mind a ladder set up in our living room for a day or two while the build was in progress So let’s get started!
I’ve had my eye on all of the gorgeous beaded chandeliers floating around out there, so I was more than excited when a Camilia from Effortless Style Blog came to me and asked my if I could do a build for her nursery similar in shape to this Malibu Chandelier by Serena & Lily. She wanted a more “Hollywood Regency” look than the au natural inspiration and chose green beads and orange leather cording for her accents. Anyone can do one of these builds themselves with a little time and patience…and a little know how, which this tutorial will hopefully give you!
Getting a Design Plan Together
So I love to have a plan before I start decorating any room. Many designers out there create a style board, which is an awesome way to let people see all the elements of the room in one glance. I wish I knew how to do those, finding something online, cutting it out of its background, and placing it on a white background with all kinds of other designs…but alas, just not a skill I’ve mastered yet. But I can kick some butt in Power Point, which is what I used to create this design. Layering shapes, importing pictures from retail site all to create an elevation of what each wall will look like….
