We felt our dining room needed different lighting. The dome light just didn’t give adequate light. In fact, I kept it off more often than on, because it made so little difference, and I saved the money. Since we were remodeling already, I figure a new light was in order as well.
While browsing Pinterest, I came across this DIY Drum light tutorial over at From Gardners 2 Bergers. Although I really liked how she made her drum light, she also linked over to another tutorial at The Keylor Family. I felt my talent for craftiness was best suited with The Keylor Family’s tutorial.
With the dining room remodel accomplished I decided to add my finishing touch with a drum light, in pure hopes we’d get much more light in the room than the current fixture gave. A trip to the thrift store for a hanging chandelier, then to Hobby Lobby for the biggest Embroidery Hoops (23 inches)available, plexiglass, and some muslin and I was ready to begin.
