Fast forward to Sunday morning, having just finished tiling the fireplace, this was the next task on my list. The light had arrived in a neat, little box, unassembled. The instructions stated that it should take 40 to 60 minutes to assemble. OK, believe that. I had seen this light on another blog, and they said it took them 4 hours! I was determined to beat that time. So I set about assembling it. It took a lot longer than the 40 minutes, and I can only equate it to building the lego death star. And it kind of resembles it also. I'm sure that it's not everyones cup of tea, and it is really big (31.5 inches diameter to be exact), but I love it. It also casts a fabulous pattern on the ceiling and walls when turned on, might be a bit distracting when you're trying to play the piano, but cool none the less.
It's made out of bamboo and has a lovely, organic and natural look to it.
I bought it in the caramel color.
One down only 12 more to go!
It casts great shadows on the ceiling and walls. A bit like a disco ball, but more tasteful, I hope.
Finally, I want to thank everyone who voted for me in the Apartment Therapy Room for Color Contest 2011. I came 3rd in the Western Division with a lucky 333 votes!
