After seeing the post where Angelica made her version of Blueprint magazine's Light Bright diy holiday project, Telescopeeyes was inspired to make her own. (Blueprint's project is on the left, while Telescopeeyes' version is on the right.)
She says, "I set out to try using what I already had on hand to pull it off (instead of spending the outrageous $140 detailed in the mag)."
To see how she made her very cheap version of the Light Bright, just
What She Used
- An old Ikea frame covered with stapled fabric from apartment decor of years past (wood frame, thick cardboard backing, fabric). It may be the 21x29 (19x27) RAM which is only $4.99 new.
- White semi-gloss latex paint (left over from painting wall trim in the house, quart size). You can purchase a new can (Valspar 1-Quart Ultra Premium Interior Latex Semi-Gloss Wall & Trim Paint, Ultra White) at Lowe's for $12.
- A new $2 set of 100-bulb mini Christmas lights (white cord) from Target. I didn't bother gluing the lights in.
Has anyone else tried this project?
