This has been a long awaited project of mine and I am so excited to show it to you all! Hooking the lights up is fairly simple on this project but it is the chandelier frame that can be a little tricky. I suggest coming up with a design you like and going with it. I will provide my dimensions for reference, but ultimately it will be up to you to handle that part.
Material You Will Need:
Acrylic for Under Display (Check out Tap Plastics, they are an excellent source for acrylic!)
Steel Chain (for Suspending the Chandelier)
Chain Locks (Quick Links) - Like These
Beer Bottles and Caps (Clear bottles work best for the colors, but the look of saving up your favorites is really nice too)
Lighting Material You Will Need:
6x ft. High Density RGB Strip Light
3x High Density RGB Bending Extension
4x ft. High Density Warm White Strip Light
3x High Density Bending Extension
Wireless Color Controller
REIGN Touch Dimmer Switch
8/2 Clear Lamp Wire
60 Watt Plug-In Adapter
1x DC Wire Plug - Female
All right! Lets do this thing!!
Step 1: Chandelier Base Measurements
I wish I could be a little more helpful in this part of the tutorial, but there is not to much I can do as I put this together in my uncles sheet metal shop and most users will not have access to these tools.
You could build this out of wood just as strong. Just make sure to use strong screws and wood glue between your pieces. A nice wood stain could really give this a whole new look.
