Okay so I'm reconstructing this chandelier -





in the collect water bottles - rinse water bottles with dishsoap - and cut them process/phase. then I will be in the poke holes and tie fishing line process.

My question is... the way they have all the fishing line straight into the ceiling - creating LOADS of holes.. Now... I don't really want to do it like that. I feel like I could either
a) connect it all to a board and fix the board to the ceiling and then run the pendant light kit down
b) Create the chandelier from the middle out and have all of it fixed to one central spot.

The first would probably be easier... but better?

or are there any more reasonable ideas out there?


oh and btw: this will be more of a "show" in my new house than functioning - I don't plan on turning it on often if at all... since I probably won't actually use my dining room very often (except for parties!!)

I think you should use a ceiling tile to attach the fishing line to, and then put that up on the ceiling.  It'll be a clean, pretty way to keep all those holes out of your ceiling - there are tons of "styrofoam" ones that are white, lots of designs, you could even paint it a light blue...you can find 'em pretty cheap too.

That's sort of what I was thinking with the "board" idea -- a tile makes more sense. The hole issue was having me freak out a bit  Embarrassed

Totally.  That many holes in the ceiling...yikes!  Plus I think with the tile it'll be easier to place and re-place the lines to get the fall like you want it...
