U-turn Lantern

U-turn Lantern
I love this Pottery Barn knock-off idea from Jill! She found this brassy lantern at her local ReStore for $5! There are also tons of these at my local ReStore, but my ReStore is crusty, expensive and staffed by an old guy named Rueben who is allergic to friendliness. It’s not my favorite. But I really like this idea.

I would probably keep a few links of chain on there for a bit of motion though, what do you think?

Check it out on Jill’s blog HERE. Thanks Jill!

    I have never been to a Restore!! What?? That is my next thrift destination for sure!

    I want a lantern like that or maybe two. I would keep some links though.

    Love this make-over!

    You did a great job, Jill! I love it! Love the baby’s room down the hall, too!

    I think removing the chain makes it look more modern! I love it!

    Wow! SUCH a difference!! I love it sans-chain. Looks chic and not at all old-school-dated. Wow. Great idea!
