Morning o’ faithful of Trumatter. How is your day looking? It’s been a while that the premium electrician took on a project and after a series of tees and makeovers I thought it was time to enlighten ourselves with some wine bottle chandelier (the wine will enlighten you as well) in my beachy little apartment.
So, while you are spreading your mulch, I’m giving junk my best hand. Behold, we have wine bottle chandelier on the house this week.
Last Saturday we had a small jamming and photoshoot/video session in our living room, a national radio station for international music called myopus radio wanted to make us the “Big Fish” or the featured artist of the month. Clearly a lot of beers and wines flowed and when amongst everything I wanted to keep the super cute wine bottles, that our friend @wastedramblings got who also plays drums for Colaba Point, they called me “bhangarwali”- which means trash collector from the streets. Haha…I knew the looks would change once I made what I wanted to. Rohan Kadam didn’t give me any looks. He is too used to this magnificent transformations (Beat you self drum, beat)
Once everything was over, I cut the bottles with yarn, the tutorial of which you can find here and spray painted them with ocean blue. I sprayed them unevenly and little rustic. You can be the miss perfect. Next, I tied them to one another with rope and waited to put in the fairy lights.
I cut the wine bottles from the base but you can also do without it. It will not make a difference.
How to tie the fairy lights
1. measure the length in which you have tied the bottles
2. make 3 clusters (since I had 3 bottles) keeping in between the length of the wire that will be twined with the rope
3. Now start from the bottle below and gradually go up. Put the clusters in the bottle and entwine the lenth of the fairy lights in between with the rope
4. ask your electrician to help you connect it to a wire and hang it from the ceiling
This is how it looks st night!
