I became obsessed with the series of La Voliere lights when I visited The Conran Shop in New York several years ago.
I thought it was such a fun and whimsical piece and when I bought my home, I really, really wanted to splurge on one for my bedroom. With so many other projects though, it just wasn’t in the budget so I decided to create something similar myself.
This DIY all started with a wire umbrella basket from Target. My Mom picked it up for only $10 as there was no price tag on it so the sales associate just quoted what she thought was a fair price (hmmmm, I guess I’m part of why they’re leaving Canada?). I then picked up a mini pendant kit from Home Depot, an Edison light bulb and some little birds from Dollar Tree.
For under $40, I had a great new pendant light.
These clips were already on the birds making it really easy to assemble. It also makes it really easy to disassemble when I want to change the look.
I’m really happy with how this DIY project turned out. It’s just as fun as the light I coveted but definitely at a price that I can afford.
