Hello, my name is Kimber and I'm...

I’ve got to admit something.  Because admitting a problem is the first step towards recovery, correct? 

Okay, so here goes:  I am an addict.  A DIY addict. 

I come by it very honestly.  I remember when my mama, sister and I would go clothes shopping mama would always say, “Do you know how easy that would be to make?”  I hated hearing those words as a teenager, but now they resonate with me.  I like to think it was the teachings of my parents, who work hard and are the most talented people I know, that made me think that I can DIY anything.  But honestly it may just be that I am cheap  a masochist frugal.  Or that I have champagne taste on a beer budget (the other thing my mama always told me).  Whichever it is, I am an addict nonetheless.

So when I saw this I immediately began thinking of ways I could DIY it.

And then immediately began imagining it in my bedroom.  You know, the one that I’m re-doing as part of the One Room Challenge?  The one that that has to be done in the next 3 ½ weeks?  Yep, that one. 

The sad thing is that I KNOW I could make this.  But do I have time?  Do I care?  Should I go for it?  Am I freaking nuts?



  1. You are nuts and I say go for it!! I do the same thing to myself all of the time, but it would be so FAB!!! May its a Kim thing ;)

  2. I can't wait to see this one, so go for it! You may need to enlist some child labor to get it done.

  3. This is one of my favorite light fixtures!! It gets me giddy every time i see it. I'd love to see a DIY way to make it!!! :) good luck!

  4. Yes, yes!! Do it , do it! And then show us all how because I've been obsessed with that fixture forevevah!!

  5. You're probably working on it as I type this comment. Of course you should do it. And then show me how.
