    Where is that copper pendant light from?

  2. Looooove these!! I’m not a hand-woman so I’ll probably have to buy these!

    Oooh I love the look of these. I need to learn to be crafty so I can do things like that myself.

    Oooh I would love to do the DIY of this! You always feel much prouder of something when you had a hand in the creation or building of it. Even Ikea furniture looks better knowing that I spent 5 hours building a shoe shelf.

    I have a friend how DIY’d something similar with white rope, all around the upper perimeter of her living room. It looked fantastic, but I think I prefer the look of the leather myself.
