Every time I look at my chandelier, I think I've really gotta get a new one...if any of you have a house from the 90's you'll know exactly what I mean!  It's just I can't decide what I want; and since my husband is a commercial fisherman, he's away a lot and when he gets home the last thing he wants to do is install one!  

So, one day I was in the dollar store and found these post it like notes and these little stick on circles. And that is how my chandelier evolved! 

I love it!  It's like it's wearing a little blue flirty skirt.  Now, I can look at my chandelier and smile instead of grumble as I walk by.  It only took about a 30 minutes (I took breaks:) 
and about $3.00.  Yes, this is probably a temporary fix but the real joy is I traded my chandelier irritation for a chandelier smile.   Now, I don't have to be frustrated every time I walk by my chandelier which is like a million times a day!   Plus, I have plenty of stickies for my next brainstorm!  

Whew, I got super lucky! Post its were the exact same size as the panels! Measuring & exactness are not my thing!

I don't think anyone needs this but
Here's how I did it:
I started at the bottom of each panel stuck a stickie & worked my way up.  Did a couple more panels, took a couple of breaks then moved on to the next panel until I was done. No exactness, just kept on stickin.

The top of the panels were curved so I had to make a template, just a little measuring and then cut 10 at once to complete all the panels.

Then added the circle stickers to cover the little metal things.  

Now for the chain, I just added some left over wall paper and some blue ribbon from my craft stash. (again no measuring)

For the circle I covered it with more stickies & dots.
Super Easy Peasy!!

I hope you have an amazing day and hey, don't wait 2 years to end an irritation that only takes about 30 minutes even if its only temporary! 
(some of my sticky notes fell off but since I had extras I just stuck new ones on) Here's where I made a quick Change in 5 minutes & Mailbox WOW! to increase my daily happiness.

hmm... I think I'm gonna look for a blue ruffly skirt, I've been seeing them all day :)

I'm having fun here, come join me!
