Rope lighting

The last few days have been a blur!
My youngest son is still here  on leave
So very little is being done on any of our projects.
I did manage to rehang the cottage chandy  one morning before he awoke though!
I decided to remove the chain...
And hang it from rope!

I had found this old piece of rope out in the shed and wanted to use it somehow along with
A vintage barn pulley I had bought  last year after the French Flea Market .

Just a little something to change things up a bit! Add a touch more character!

I love the much more like a lantern now!
Don't you think so too?


  1. Oh my gosh that is the
    coolest idea!! I love it!

  2. I do LOVE it!!! Love that pulley too, totally cool!

  3. Given enough rope I could hang...oh never mind. I love it!

  4. Wowww!! that is great from

  5. I really like it too. I have been wanting to hang one of my chandelier's with a rope. You have inspired me. thanks!

  6. I bought one of those hook-thingies at the antique market, plan to install a big outdoor chandelier with candles on it.
    Couldn't help but notice the paper behind the mirrors on the wall..... hmmm?? do show that - it looks interesting.

  7. The addition of the pulley just MAKES this look, Donna! What a fun look. :-) Sue

  8. The lattern is, love the cream pumpkins.
