There was a wine store down the street from our apt in Chicago called Lush. Lush had two of these amazing wine glass chandeliers above their bar/tasting area in the store. I always commented on how cool they were, and B surprised me at our rehearsal dinner with one to be placed into our first home.
After we moved in, this was the first project after the boxes were unpacked. We knew we had the perfect spot the minute we looked at the house, and so all we had to do was figure out how to play safely with electricity :) We'd never done a project like that before, so both of us were a little nervous. We googled it, prayed a bit(seriously I thought he might get eletrocuted), and got to work. We were able to do it without killing ourselves, and now it is such a cool statement piece in our kitchen. The table it sits above will eventually be a wine cork table top, and it is going to be sooooo cool.
