Hello and welcome to Our Crafty Mom! I’m obsessed with the beautiful wood bead chandeliers that you see in all the home decor stores and magazines like this one from Pottery Barn:

But I don’t really have a place for one right now. However, that didn’t stop me from picking up wood beads from the craft store whenever I saw them on sale or had a coupon.
 
You never know when you might need wood beads right? I used some to make a pretty farmhouse style wreath and beautiful wood blessing beads with an oyster shell.

But, I was determined to put those beads to good use and make a wood bead lamp inspired by all the beautiful chandeliers!

Here is an easy to follow tutorial:

I found a lamp at the thrift store for $6. It was just the right size and shape that I needed:

The farmhouse look is perfect to go with the wood beads so I simply gave it a whitewash finish using my go to chalk paint-Deco Art Americana Chalky Finish Paint in Everlasting

I was so excited to start the beading that I neglected to take a before picture of the lamp shade.  But it had ivory floral fabric that was discolored.

I couldn’t tear the fabric off fast enough! I will admit that this lamp shade was a labor of love. It was very easy to make, but extremely time consuming.

I would just string a couple of rows after work each night. I tied the wire to the top of the lamp base added 14 beads and tied it off on the bottom of the base.

Once all the beads were added I hot glued the rope along the top and bottom to cover the frame. I am so thrilled with how it turned out!

Some day I will have the chandelier, but for now I will enjoy my wood bead lampshade!

I also used a Vintage Edison Light Bulb as you could see the bulb through the space and I liked the look of an Edison bulb more than a standard bulb.
