Decisions, Decisions

I've pretty much gotten most of the nursery look and feel decided on, and the wall art is all just hanging around, well, waiting to be hanged.

But one thing I just can't decide on?

The light fixture.

After perusing the lighting section at Lowe's and nothing was calling our name - and with the nearest Ikea being hours away - I figured that we'd just have to get our hands dirty and DIY some sort of lighting fixture if we want something fun and unique for the little guy's room.

And I immediately thought of this DIY string pendant light found here on the Crafty Nest.

It's a West Elm Abaca pendant lamp knockoff (see below), but it's fun, customizeable, and pretty sweet looking. Oh, and I love West Elm's stuff, so of course I'm totally in love with it - especially the price tag, which looks to be about $35.

What do you think? Yay? Nay? Would you hang a light fixture like this in the room?

  1. I love it! I've seen these before and think they would be great for the nursery (although I'm not sure where the rest of the room is going yet - but am dying to find out). I say go for it!

  2. I love it!! I literally just put up our light fixture in the nursery this weekend...an ikea light to be exact! We're also hours away but I needed it!

    Haha! Seriously I have everything but our art figured out for the nursery. I mean I am due in also 5 weeks...I should probably get it together! :p

  3. Just recently started following your blog- so a belated congrats on your coming addition! I love these light fixtures- I have seen them on pinterest several times and would love to give them the ol' diy try but you know, so many projects so little time. :) These fixtures are great because they are versitile and could grow with the room- and baby!
