My Husband Does my Pinterest Projects

I can't remember where I stumbled upon mason jar lights first. These two are from Pottery Barn.

Then as I clicked on pictures in the google images search, I found this blog, showed Ed, discussed and decided that there had to be an easier way, and then we took a trip to Lowe's.

We picked out this light fixture from the portfolio line, and two individual pendants. Resources
We already had some mason jars that my grandma gave me.
Edward drilled a couple holes, removed the old fixture, adjusted the wire lengths, while I washed the jars.

And now we have this perfect light fixture!

It was pretty easy, especially for me because I didn't do any of the hard parts. I love it. I love that three of the jars (the big center one, and the two smallest) belonged to my grandma.

It cost
$54 for the main fixture
$40 for the two pendants
$8 for the drill bit hole saw thingy

It's Been...

Months since I posted over here. There's really no excuse.
Since I last blogged we've (well, mostly Eddie)
1. Picked out a wall color that we didn't actually end up liking
2. Painted and added trim to Andrew's room
3. Replaced all the interior doors
4. Started building the dining room booth
5. Built, but not completed an entry way bench/foot locker/storage thing
6. Hung the flat screen on the wall
7. Demoed part of the main bathroom
8. Built shelves for the garage
9. Decorated for Christmas
10. Replaced the back door with new French doors
11. Had a break in
12. Started using Pinterest
13. Dug up the entire yard (it wasn't much of a yard, just dirt and weeds)
14. Got a new slip cover for the couch
15. Hung some stuff on the walls
and I'm sure there is some other stuff that I can't remember
