Everyone knows the easiest way to create romantic atmosphere is to light a candle, but I came across a cool DIY that I am DYING to try!
Lightbulb Makeover: DIY
If you have a plain light bulb in your home that could use some sprucing, then this project is for you! Just grab a piece of lace and some spray paint!
Tape lace over light bulb (I’d use a low watt, soft pink or soft white bulb). Hold can 8-10 inches away, and spray evenly with paint. Carefully remove the lace while the paint is wet, and set the bulb to dry. What could be easier?!
This would look great in metallic (to glitz up a closet, or dining room), soft pastel colors (baby’s room), or bold hues (for the adventurous)!
I am having grand visions of painting a few, and clustering them together for a modern (and inexpensive) alternative to a chandelier. Obviously with the paint blocking most of the light, these aren’t going to illuminate a dark room or give you ample reading light, but the soft glow through the intricate pattern will likely cast a cool design in a dark room, provide a bit of light for those with bad dreams, or just look plain awesome.
