DIY Chandelier Project

 

The 2010 Hampton Designer Showhouse, with the absence of a Kips Bay house in Manhattan this year, wins the default prize as the premiere decorator's showhouse on the east coast. The assortment of rooms and furnishing styles is wonderful, and we particularly loved Irwin Weiner's brave do-it-yourself project, taking an $89 Home Depot chandelier and recladding it with $10-20 in craft paper from Michael's to make an origami shade that seems to float cloudlike over his sitting room in the house. This video takes us step-by-step through the installation.
